Plus, there were some nice views:
June 20: as yesterday, today's hiking provided a not of a history lesson. We saw the original Washington Monument, alongside ( what else) plaques about George Washington's life.
June 21: the longest day of the year! And boy, did we need all the daylight we could get. Since our resupply was fond mainly at an outfitter, we decided on 2-3 days of food with a trip to a grocery when we could. That happened today. But first....right outside Pen Mar Couny Park, we left the Apple-latch-Che-un Trail and arrived at the Apple-lay-shun Trail:
June 21st is also naked hiking day. Yes, I did see some naked hikers. And yes, I hiked naked - under a protective layer of clothing. Because while I embrace the spirit of naked hiking day, there are ticks, bugs, poison ivy, sunburns, and chafing to consider!
