The fog was so thick that you couldn’t see the Craggy Pinnacle trailhead from the visitor’s center on the Blue Ridge Parkway that morning. I figured these were the perfect conditions for “Craggy Gardens” to live up to that name.
It was a little disappointing only having 20 – 30 feet of visibility when I reached a viewing platform on the main hiking trail. I decided to wander into some of the “crag” forest and focus on what was right in front of me. On a day like this, it would be so easy to get hopelessly lost only a mile from your car. At least until the sun comes back out. I unfortunately had to miss the spectaular vistas the place is known for.
