Last Friday, I headed to Sugar Loaf mountain in Virginia with my awesome creative services team from International Justice Mission. We traveled courageously up half the mountain in a car, daring to sacrifice our reputations and pride in order to make the hike a little shorter and less daunting.
Though the elevation was nowhere near as high as Shenandoah and was way less majestic, Sugar Loaf Mountain still did not disappoint.
Besides a couple deer, and the fantastic view, I actually found the spider webs and the thick forest growth to be the most compelling part of this climb. There was an ent-feel to the surrounding woods. Thankfully, there was no Shelob to accompany the webs.
Here is an assortment of photos from our journey up the hill/mountain of sugar loaf.
