My “Nero” day was a real morale booster. After restocking in Front Royal, I hiked 4 miles up the mountain into the national park and then promptly out to the Terrapin Station hostel. So it’s another night with sheets and clean laundry. Sweet! 🍕
And I met some NOBO thru-hikers.
And finally, I have yet to see a bear. Not that I want to…
Yes, that was on the trail; it’s not a dog track. 🐻
Tomorrow I hike back into Shenandoah National Park. I am only 10 miles behind my itinerary but should hike into Loft Mountain Campground on the 8th to meet Andrew, just as planned.
