Yesterday morning our family woke up early, packed a picnic lunch, and headed to Nelson County, Virginia, to hike Crabtree Falls. Our friends Matt and Shannon Barrett and their two children Crosby and Amelia, met us there with their picnic lunches. We hiked, admired the enjoy the view of the waterfalls and the view from the top of Crabtree Falls, took pictures, enjoyed our picnic lunch, and simply enjoyed the day and the company. Is is a beautiful hike, and the view at the top is worth the effort. The hike is 1.7 miles each way, for a total of 3.4 miles. Parking is available at the trail head for $3 per vehicle. More information can be found here.
