Solid day of hiking today. Finished up the last few miles in Shenandoah National Park today and was dumped back onto good 'ole AT trails. You can definitely tell the difference between national park land versus the rest of the trail, with the former typically being maintained a bit better.

 

Walked right past the road into Front Royal, VA and two nice hostels. I returned to the trail with enough food to get me to Harper's Ferry so I won't be stopping anytime soon.

 

Rain held off for most of the day, a few sprinkles now and then but nothing major. Sun still won't come out, so we're all still waiting for those sunny summer days.

 

Rolled into camp tonight with a wicked migraine and I felt like I was going to vomit. Took all the strength I had in me to take some ibuprofen, gather water, and choke down some dinner. Lying in my sleeping bag, feeling a bit better - hope I'm back up to snuff in the morning.
