I’d been wanting to hike Bull Run Mountain for years. It’s out in Manassas, Virginia, not far from the Civil War battlefield, but less touristy. In fact, hubby – who is usually hip to all the worthwhile hikes in northern Virginia, had never even heard of it. Still, he was on board the moment I told him where we were going this weekend… because I saved Bull Run Mountain for a special occasion: a surprise hike for hubby’s birthday. And it was the perfect hike to celebrate with – quiet, but not deserted, just challenging enough, and with a payoff of great views at the top. We’ll be back for sure.
Happy birthday, handsome!
