Shining Rock Pic Set 3
Shining Rock Approach

Before you can climb out over Shining Rock lookout, you'll first have to make a short climb up some large boulders.

Short Climb
The spot we chose for the final climb was not easy.  I'm not sure there was a spot that was "easy".

The Lookout
The lookout from atop the rock that undoubtedly gives it the name "Shining Rock"
Exhausted Trip Down
This picture was well over halfway back down the mountain, and this badly needed rest shows an exhausted group of hikers.
