Early Spring Hike to Stone Mountain State Park, North Carolina.

April 13, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

We recently went down to the beautiful Stone Mountain State Park.  It's only a 90 minute drive from my home in Radford, and if we time it right, the boy can sleep for most of the drive!

I hike light these days since I carry the boy, so these photos were taken with my smartphone and an Aukey Polarizer. The raw files were edited in Lightroom Mobile.(what a time to be alive!)

We first went up the Wolf Rock/Cedar Rock trails.  The Cedar Rock trail gives an awesome view of Stone Mountain from across the valley.

The Wolf Rock view isn't as dramatic but the lack of other people is very serene.

We took a pit stop at the homestead at the base of the mountain before heading up!

We were with only a handful of other visitors today.

There are a BOATLOAD of stairs on one side of the mountain, and since the boy seems to constantly try and climb the stairs at home(which is against the rules), I let him have a taste of his own medicine!  Unfortunately, he actually enjoyed the 40 or so stairs I let him climb.

The blooms are starting to come about!
