I’m off…

Exploring Harpers Ferry with Stephanie for a day with a stay at this great bed and breakfast: Angler’s Inn. Great place for fly fishing but no time now.
Next morning it was raining fierce but finally let up around noon. I took off and made it to the first camp site about 6 miles later. Great view of the  Potomac from up high. Brand new campsite that kept a 6 hikers at  dry through some pretty heavy rains.

Entire morning was hiking through dense fog along a Mountain Ridge so it’s difficult to get any good views. By early afternoon sun came out and I’m here now at a nice campsite packing my tent for the first night.
Definitely taking my time but so far smooth sailing downhill and on the level. Going up the steep hills remains a challenge. Dr. Edmonds would be proud

Hope you enjoy some of the pictures below.

First wildlife sighting. 
Look carefully.


Typing this blog right now. Forcast for rain tonight.  Hope this tent works!

    Hi Mike, are you emulating the box turtle? Slow and steady. How are the birds in the morning? I’m sure they beat the pager.

    Excellent! Very inspiring. That turtle has the right idea, slow and steady wins the race. Go Mike Go.
