Posted from Bland, Virginia, United States.
We camped next to Dismal Falls last night. It was a beautiful spot. I crossed the creek and hiked a mile down the road to get hotdogs and ice cream at a convenience store. We cooked over a fire and had a grand old time. Had a pretty uneventful day today. Did 18 miles and it seemed like a “normal” day. It was hot and muggy most of the day until an afternoon shower cooled things off. The shelter was full-first time in quite a while- so I am in my tarp for the second night in a row.
