Hiking With The Herd (Mills River Valley to Elk Pasture Gap)

We continued our hiking with the herd along the Mountains to Sea Trail yesterday by covering the Mills River Vally to the Elk Pasture Gap stretch.

The Hu-dad was quite pleased with the fact that we were all good and tired when we returned to the Jeep for our trip back to the house.

And, yes, the view from the parking area was pretty nice, too.
