The first night will be spent at a campsite near Rhodendron Gap. The second night will be at a campsite either near the Wise Shelter or on Stone Mountain. The concluding hike will be back along the AT to the parking lot on VA 603. [R-25 in good weather]. Please register or notify Vance Barron no later than Monday, January 23, if you would like to go. Be prepared for wintry weather, which would increase the R-rating.
