Got an early start today out of Pearisburg. I started out with a road walk back to the trail and a 1,700 ft climb to Angels Rest. It was nice to get the climb early. The rest of the hike was along the ridge covered with Rhododendrons in bloom! There were flowers 🌺 everywhere.
I’m at Woods Hole Hostel in their bunk house for the night. Dinner with other hikers was awesome.
Tomorrow will be another day for miles and resupply at Trent’s Grocery.
