Old Rag gigapans

Posted by Callan Bentley

Lily and I took a hike yesterday over Old Rag Mountain, a popular destination in Shenandoah National Park. I took the opportunity to shoot a few gigapan images of the scene. If you click on the word “Gigapan” in the lower right of any of these images, it will take you to gigapan.org’s full page viewer.

Once we got above the trees, this was the view to the north:

This was the scene looking west at the second big uphill rock “scramble,” with the mountain’s summit in the distance at the right:

Lastly, check out these opferkessel atop on of the granite outcrops:

There! It’s just like hiking the mountain yourself, except that your legs are a lot less sore than mine are.
