At the tail end of our hike, we wennt down the Sims Trail, and back onto the Boardwalk. The 4.4 mile hike was very nice and tring for every one. Back at the visitor's center, Virginia Jerry and I became junior rangers! It was cool.

Richard thought we'd find the same price on down the road. NO...it was $3.00. Did we stop? Nahhh...kept going. At 1/8 of a tank, we did get gas...only it was $3.03.
