“Every Mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing. And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling.”
Mile marker 657, Pine Swamp Shelter, to mile marker 724, Lambert Meadows: 67 miles in 5 days. The 3 R's on what to watch out for on our hike? ROOTS, ROCKS and RATTLESNAKES!
Not really a great place to sleep for the night.
Even the trees are using social distancing practices.......with a Detroit Red Wings mask!
Uphill that went on forever!
A LARGE Kiefer Oak tree!
MacGyver checking out that ridge line in the distance which we will climb later in the day....also assessing the potential storm in the distance!
We originally thought that Virginia was going to be somewhat an "easy walk in the park".....Wrong! This type of path...or kind of a path....was quite common this year.
Audie Murphy Memorial
Came across this moving momument dedicated to the most decorated American soldier of World War II. This was near the place he died in 1971 in a place crash.
700 Mile Marker!
