Yesterday I learned that Mt. Pleasant wasn’t just a suburb of Charleston, SC and that the proper pronunciation of  Buena Vista is “Bew-na Vista” (and not “Bwain-a Vista”). Although I’ve lived in Virginia for 9 years, I am still learning things about my state every week. Hiking all over the place this summer is providing lots of these opportunities.

We had our first team training hike this weekend. Seven Xtreme hikers and our guide gathered 9:30 on Saturday at Mount Pleasant in the George Washington Forest. It was  awesome to finally meet some of the other participants taking this “journey” with Genevieve and me. We came from all over the state — Northern Virginia, Lynchburg, Richmond, Va Beach.

The hike was about a six mile loop and provided some amazing views. Lots of ups-and-downs in the shaded woods brought us to two different overlooks, allowing views for miles.

This is a great trail that I’d definitely recommend to anyone wanting to do a half-day hike. Legs are sore today, but not too bad. Next team hike is July 13th. Woo. Go team!
