Extra early start to the day as we cowboy camped (no rain protection) and didn’t have to put away our tarps. Moonlight was very bright.
Saw Purple and Carnivore in the morning as we were walking out. They had arrived in the dark last night after we had already retired to our hammocks.
The day was nice, warm and clear. Terrain was smooth for the first part. Once we had left Shenandoah National Park and headed up the mountain out of Rockfish Gap, some parts were rocky, but in general it was still good walking for the day.
Ran into Mace mid-morning and hiked with him for the day and are camping with him tonight.
Hung out at the Humpback Rock overlook for over an hour. Great views and it was nice to sit in the sun since we had made good miles for the day already.
Tonight we are camped at one of the nicest spots we have had on the hike. Found a campsite that is at an overlook that is facing westward. Had a great sunset to watch as we had dinner.
