The Yellow Deli hostel was fantastic. It’s run by the Twelve Tribes, a free spirited religious group. All the food was fresh and organic. Dinner last night was preceded by singing, dancing, and testimonials. It was a nice treat after spending several days on the trail.
On the A.T. there are terms for the route you take. Following the white blazes on the trail is “white-blazing.” Taking the Shenandoah River from Waynesboro to Harpers Ferry is “aqua-blazing.” A shortcut on the road is a “yellow-blaze.” There are lots more, but today I’m “Aero-blazing” from Rutland to Killington Peak where I’ll start hiking. I’ll be hiking down hill and will hopefully have an easy day.
