Our car GPS led to a wrong point, until google maps got it right. The extra drive was very interesting - into the wildish road at night. Everyone was vigilant & curious of what was to come & were we heading in the right direction or not! Add to it, the b&b owner didn't pick our calls.

... but after 2 miles spotted them another mile or more away on a bald knob. We decided not to pursue them, but enjoyed the views along the way. This is a lovely highland area that reminded us much of our home in West Virginia, and Dolly Sods Wilderness area, which is in our own backyard. Still, one never tires of such beauty, wherever it may be found!
After our hike we drove back to Marion, Virginia, and had a late lunch at a barbeque place there.
We met up with AJ (our nephew) and Allison, who are hiking the Appalachian Trail. We had breakfast together at the Apple Tree Restaurant in Marion, and they told us all about their adventure on the trail. They are 1/4 of the way through and Virginia has the longest stretch of trail. They took a week off for AJ to collect his PHD diploma, then headed back on the trail. Their packs weigh about 40 pounds, and we watched as they reorganized them with ...

I had known there were a lot of hikers in town - all the hostels, inns and bunkrooms in the town had been full for weeks, if not months, and Tent City was ridiculously huge (one person compared it to the scene from Harry Potter at the Quidditch World Cup, with all the wizards in their ridiculous tents, and I thought the comparison was apt, especially after seeing some ...
... hikers. The hike itself was fine, but near the end my feet and ankles got pretty sore and my legs very tired and I was just ready to be at the shelter. I guess I was still feeling the effects of the big days into Damascus I did. I think one day of about 25 miles every once in a while would be ok, but two in a row was a bit much. I'm only planning days of 15-18 miles for the next little while, so hopefully that will have me back to feeling good again. While most of Virginia is ...
... hitched up to Damascus early to meet some friends and was now doing the part she skipped before shuttling back to Damascus. So she's still two or three days ahead of me, but it was cool to get to unexpectedly see her. I finally made it to Iron Mountain Shelter, where, incredibly, even though I was getting there late in the day, there was only one person in the six-person shelter, meaning I didn't have to set up my hammock after such a long hike. It was a Christmas miracle. Even ...
