Blood Mountain Wilderness and Preacher’s Rock

  Yesterday, we were at Woody Gap and hiked to Preacher's Rock and on a little further. It was cool and windy at the Gap but very nice on the top. It's been weeks since I have been able to hike mostly due to "puppy" Wessy and the rain! What a wild last two weeks [...]
