Just a last few miles today as the great adventure with my Mom has come to an end. Rolled into Rockfish Gap just a few minutes before Dad showed up to whisk us away to the hotel. Another day cluttered with grocery shopping, laundry, a much-needed haircut, and very little time to relax and chat with Mom and Dad. It's been a great hike with Mom all week. I'm so proud that she came out to join me and enjoyed herself despite the trail's difficulty at times.
The day ended with a fabulous dinner at The Depot Grille in Stuarts Draft—excellent food, dessert, and of course, company. Thanks Mom for keeping me company for a week, and thanks Dad for making not one, but two car trips back and forth to Virginia in just a week! I almost forgot what a nice soft bed feels like to sleep on....almost.
