Well, the weather was absolutely perfect hiking weather today and the terrain was easy to boot. Hiked the day with Skyline and Sundance as we passed the first of our many future crossings with the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Mr. Shin Splint decided to rear his ugly head for a dramatic encore performance today, but my feet were really comfortable hiking 20 miles in my new comfy sandals, despite the shin agony. Day ended beautifully with Trail Magic in the form of grape sodas and beer sunk in a stream 3 miles from day’s end.
