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.
... brought them some treats) for the next week on the trail. They have some interesting gadgets, including a tiny gas stovetop. Footgear becomes very important and they have issues with drying as rain has been abundant this summer. Allison had a bite and rash on her leg but no pain or illness- so- they will continue on their way! They are still full of excitement and energy. What a bold endeavor! After breakfast we gave them a ride back to the AT.
