It has been an exciting week on the AT! Harper’s Ferry is not quite the halfway point, and this week the real halfway point was passed. The 1100 mile mark was passed, too.
In addition to those two milestones, the states of West Virginia and Maryland are complete. With the crossing of the Mason-Dixon line, I am officially back in the north and in Pennsylvania.
Along the way, the terrain has changed a bit. It is bit more flat, with less steep climbs and even quite a bit of farm fields to hike through. In addition to that, there is fruit ripe for the picking if I keep a careful eye out. So far, our group has had mulberries, cherries, raspberries and some early blueberries. While it isn’t a lot of food, it is a nice treat since we don’t often get fruit on the trail.
Looking foward to next week, and whatever that will bring!
