Hiking at Hanging Rock! November 7th

Look across miles of autumn orange and red foliage at Hanging Rock State Park, Stokes County, North Carolina, USA. The eroded quartzite knob called Hanging Rock rises to 2150 feet elevation. The park is 30 miles (48 km) north of Winston-Salem, and approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) from Danbury. Hanging Rock State Park is located in the Sauratown Mountain Range, which is made up of monadnocks (or inselbergs, isolated hills) that are separated from the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. Prominent peaks in the Sauratown range rise from 1,700 feet (520 m) to more than 2,500 feet (760 m) in elevation and stand in contrast to the surrounding countryside, which averages only 800 feet (240 m) in elevation. Named for the Saura Native Americans who were early inhabitants of the region, the Sauratown Mountains are the erosion-resistant quartzite remnants of mountains pushed up between 250 and 500 million years ago.

We are taking a hiking trip to Hanging Rock State Park on Saturday, November 7th. International Friends will provide the transportation and you will pack your own lunch. Also, bring money for dinner as we will stop at a restaurant on the way home. The cost is $20 per person and you must pre-register so we know how many vans we will need to rent. . Here is the link to register.
