Next I head east just a couple of miles to Biglerville, where it becomes even more evident that this is apple country--there's even a "National Apple Museum". Almost as big as the town itself is what looks like a big apple processing plant. I see a number of Latinos (haven't seen many in other small towns in the county) so I'm guessing orchard work is a draw here for immigrant labour. I ...

... at the edge of the foothills of South Mountain--the ridge between the Chambersburg and Gettysburg valleys, and is an important apple and peach growing area.

This is the typical European town design: the town is built around a central area ...

Day 308
8 hrs, 20 kms

From Taneytown I head north back to Pennsylania again. I suppose I could keep going east--but that's going to take me into the Greater Baltimore Area--and that's going to be another Superhike: my "Megapolis Superhike" covering all the Big East Coast cities.

For now I just want to to stick to the quiet rural towns of the Appalachian corridor. As I approach Pennsylvania I notice several beer stores along the ...
