On Saturday morning, June 30th we had trouble communicating with our posse due to the downed towers, electrical wires, and other infrastructural damages in Sperryville, VA. I left the Marriott in Strasburg, VA with a wheat bagel as my only solid food to fuel a 7-hour hike; I love the Marriott but this one has the worse breakfast options. My first …
On a hot & humid Friday afternoon, I set out to explore the Shenandoah River Valley starting with Seneca Rocks with my cousin, Watky.
