For this trip, I did not want to go tent camping. Jon’s compromise was a Virginia cabin in a secluded area with no water. But it did have a toilet. Toilets are not guaranteed in our adventures.
Those plans quickly changed when we discovered Grayson Highlands State Park. We were more impressed with this park than many of the national parks that we have visited. Grayson Highlands has an amazing mix of wooded trails (including a section of the Appalachian Trail), wild ponies, streams for wading, and rocks for scrambling.
