Got rolling around our usual time these days, 6:50. Had some good early morning views to start the day. We could see the low lying clouds over the Shenandoah Valley below.
Timing was right for us to pick up breakfast at a wayside. It was great to get a restaurant breakfast here. These waysides in the park are awesome. We took quite a long break there.
Later in the morning we ran into Manparty and Lush, a couple of thru-hikers that we had not seen since Vermont. Was fun catching up with them…will probably see them more in the coming weeks.
Had dinner at a picnic area. Nice to have running water so close and to relax at the picnic tables in a park like atmosphere. We are stealth camping not too far from that picnic area, so we should be able to use the bathrooms in the morning…a nice bonus.
