04.20.15Saunders-Monticello Trail

Though hiking along the Saunders-Monticello Trail (owned and operated by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation) had been on my to-do list since we moved to Charlottesville, we just never made it over there… until a couple weeks ago. It was the perfect Saturday morning: not a cloud in the sky, the perfect temperature, and budding flowers popping up everywhere. We started at the base of the trail and took the path about 2 miles on a slight incline to the Saunders bridge that leads into the Monticello visitor center. Next time we visit Monticello, I think we’ll be taking the trail instead of driving up the mountain – it’s just too pretty not to!
