Dad and I headed out for 7 days and 7 nights on that Appalachian Trail where we hiked from the middle of the Shenandoah National Park to Harper’s Ferry, WV. We say many deer, huge forests/trees, 3 bear, and countless other small animals. We also ate Paw Paws (mix between a banana and a kiwi) and some wild grapes that were growing on an old plantation/homesite. It was great hiking again with Dad, we met and hiked a good bit with Bruce from Tuscaloosa and we enjoyed near perfect weather for the entire trip. The days started easy and progressively got tougher in both terrain and miles as we pressed to get to our destination.
