Appalachian Trail Happiness: West VA & Maryland
So a couple of weeks ago I decided to wrap up my final piece of the AT and finish up with a total of 1200 miles. I jumped back on the trail in Harpers Ferry and quickly you cross the bridge from West Virginia into Maryland.
The trail runs along the old Chesapeake and Ohio Canal tow path and is about as flat a bit of walking as you can find on the AT. It’s a pleasant walk along the river and you even get to see a bit of wildlife.
Along the trail you also encounter the first US monument to George Washington, don’t get too excited about the caution type, no crime happened at the monument, a lightning strike hit the monument and so no one is being allowed inside.
I was picked up at Pen Mar and brought into Waynesboro, PA to take a nearo and a zero to celebrate my 51st birthday. Kind of amazing that this year has flown by so fast. In Waynesboro I stayed at the Burgandy Lane B&B and it was absolutely amazing, super nice people, great room and the second best breakfast I’ve had on the trail. It made for a wonderful birthday and a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
