Walking for Words – On the AT


Took a break from the keyboard for a little R&R – that’s Relaxing and (not) ‘Riting – and had the good fortune to spend it on the Appalachian Trail and on some of the Shenandoah National Park trails.

We ended up timing it perfectly, with three straight days of sun, cool mornings, and warm afternoons.  The day we headed home, it rained.
Absolutely stunning scenery, with the mountain laurel in bloom and spectacular scenes from the top of some of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  My only disappointment was that each day, I passed one or more groups of hikers who had seen bear, but not me.  

Oh well, a good reason to return one day, huh?

Happy writing,
