2011 First HIKE!

Easter Sunday found us in Virginia where we met with Cute Son #2 and his girlfriend, Katherine for a walk in the woods to celebrate spring and the holiday in the best way BirdCouple could imagine.


Aren't they just the sweetest?
13 mile dayhike on a gorgeous day with loads of great views...
The leaves were that bright lime color, that they only possess for a week or so when they are still super new on the trees.

A few warblers were calling from all those newly decorated trees.  Black and White Warblers were out in force...
We hiked along the most beautiful stream for about a mile or so...
And, Katherine found her first trailmagic....
We left the Miller High Life and chips for any thru hikers who might want to celebrate Easter on top of the mountain.

Happy faces...
and a great hike on the best Easter ever!

Hmmm... I think Connecticut is calling us next.... or maybe the PRIEST!

Way to begin 2011 with a bang, Bird Couple! What a great stretch in VA. We're so glad that you could share the special hike with your son and his girlfriend. It must have been a terrific Easter. We'll be thinking of you this summer as you continue the trek!

Happy Trails,
GG and Rhodo
