Peaks of Otter




I'm back and I survived (actually did quite well) on the mountain hike with my oldest and youngest son. Peaks of Otter consists of a group of 3 mountain peaks on the Blue Ridge Parkway, outside of Bedford, Virginia. They are Sharp Top, (the one we climbed and the most strenuous) with an elevation of a little over 3800 ft, Flat Top and Harkening Hill. There is also a very nice lodge with a large lake around it. The colors this time of year are beautiful along the parkway. Here is a picture of Sharp Top, the lodge and lake. I'll be back in the next day or so with a recipe. Hope you all had a fun Halloween!

Glad to see you made it back safe and sound.
