According to the online publication The Ladders, Charlottesville, Virginia is the #3 happiest place to live in America. They wrote, “Recent controversial protests notwithstanding, Charlottesville ranked high on the National Geographic/Gallup pole in terms of overall happiness - both for its educational outposts of the University of Virginia as well as its access to the picturesque and hike-friendly Blue Ridge Mountains.” #blueridgemountains#humpbackrock#sunset#happy#theladders
Hike 1 - Humpback Rock - Shenandoah, VA - Fall 2015. This was our first hike. We thought it would be fun to get outside and try it out. Little did we know we would be headed straight up hill to the summit. It was worth it as the rock formation and views are spectacular. We decided to venture back via the Appalachian Trail to make a loop which was very relaxing and only saw a handful of people along the way versus a steady stream of folks on the main trail. #humpbackrock
