Rocky Knob with Noah

We left Friday afternoon about 4pm and drove to Rocky Knob Campground. Noah and I set up the tents while David Hylton and Amy went and gathered firewood. After the tents were set we got the fire going. We ate Beef Stew Couscous for Supper and it was good. We all turned in about 10 pm and most slept OK. We had Breakfast Scramble for breakfast, after coffee. We hiked about 3 miles to the Rock Knob Cabin and back. We drove to Mabrys Mill and walked around there for a bit. We ate lunch at Poor Farmers Market and visited Nancys Fudge Factory.

Rocky Knob Campground is located at Milepost 167.1 on Blue Ridge Parkway, 1.8 miles south of the intersection of the Parkway and State Route 8 about 8 miles (13 km) from the town of Floyd or about 90 minutes south of Roanoke by car. Visitors are advised that directions from resources like Google Maps and GPS devices are not always correct and should be double-checked.
