On Saturday my boyfriend and I got up at 12:30 a.m. Why you may ask did we get up so early? Well, we decided we wanted to see the sun rise at the top of Old Rag Mountain. We had done the 9-mile circuit hike a few times before, but during the day — never when it was pitch black out. We went with a few of our friends, braved the cold and darkness and ultimately made it to the top. It was quite chilly and windy up there, but it was really magical watching the sun rise.
The hike was hard and I am so sore today, but the sore muscles are totally worth it. We had the whole mountain to ourselves (besides two guys who were up there for about 10 minutes).
