Starting Location: VA 606
Destination: Pearisburg, VA
Total Miles: 630.8
With cooler weather in the 50s and cloudy skies, the temperature had definitely turned my direction and miles were ripe for the picking. So, today was a perfect day to bang out some miles and get into my next town stop.
Easy trail all day today, with perfect hiking conditions until it started snowing for a little stretch in the last few miles–about the same time I developed an awesome shin splint on my left leg–they’re the greatest. Made it here around 4:30pm for some R+R and ice at the Rendezvous Motel. In typical trail fashion, I had a nice dinner with a perfect stranger who happened to be in town from his home in Essex, VT.
