Announcing a new Meetup for DC Mountain Madness!
What: Sunrise at the Old Rag: Practicing the Alpine Start (and backcountry cooking!)
When: October 24,[masked]:00 AM
Old Rag Mountain
Luray, VA 22835
Old Rag is certainly an old favorite, and for many good reasons: the fun scramble, pretty views, the best of the Shennandoah... But have you done it in the night with a headlamp, summitted by sunrise, and made a pancake breakfast at the top? I know some you have (with and without me :o)), but I'd like to do this again this October and add the fall foliage to the treat.
I am capping the event at 10, so hurry with your RSVP! We will carpool from the DC area at 2am on Saturday (that does qualify as an alpine start... even though we'll drive first :o)) and start our ascent by 4am. I will bring a backcountry stove and a pan and we'll divide responsibilities for the pancake mix (ok, crepes!!) and fillings. Yum!
