Solid day today, lots of uphill. Scenery is changing, we're heading into the highlands once again. Lots of pine as well, good soft places to camp along much of the way.
Been paralleling the Virginia Creeper Trail for the past few days, finally parted ways with it.
I enjoy the highlands, the altitude, the balds. The area we're currently in has wild ponies in it, apparently we'll be hitting up the majority of them tomorrow.
Looking forward to the Partnership Shelter in two days, shelter has a shower and you can order pizza to it.
Forty seven miles to Atkins, VA.
