Darwin and Legs finally leave Waynesboro after food poisoning. They enter the easy, and well stocked, but sodden, Shenandoah National Park. To catch their tramily, 20 mile days are ahead!
Darwin and Legs leave the famous trail hostel, Kincora and set off northward on the ‘Tennessee Turnpike.” Big days, easy trail, and beautiful vista shelters. We finally enter Virginia, the 4th state of the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail. Ahead lay 550 miles, a whole quarter of the trail, in this new state.
Dense spruce forests, windswept bald, and an Appalachian Trail Legend. We leave North Carolina for good, and enter Tennessee.
