Appalachian Trail

My son and I woke up this morning around 6am and headed outside.  It was cold and rainy and everything was still blanketed in a heavy fog. We almost started out on a hike but then at the last minute we both ran back into our beds and pulled the covers up and went back to sleep.  We never do that.  It was heavenly.  We woke up 2 hours later and the rain was just slowing down.  We made it to breakfast and back to our room before the skies opened back up.  We barely made it.  We decided to hit the road and start out on our long haul to Connecticut.  As we were leaving the Shenandoah National Park, the sun actually came out!  We stopped the car and hiked part of the Appalachian Trail. It was awesome!  We saw deer, a mountain bluebird, finches and beautiful vistas all along our walk.  We walked a little over 6 miles. It was just perfect.  The rest of the day has been spent in the car.  We are now in the 11th hour of straight driving.  One more hour to go until we get to our next stop. we come!!!
