Today has been a great adventure. I started at The Priest Shelter (mile 823) then descended down 3100 feet to a cool suspension bridge at VA 56. Then I ascended 3000 feet to a Three Ridges Mt. All of this in about 11 miles. I am having lunch (1:00) as a self-proclaimed mountain climber. I hope to hike 11 more miles today but the terrain should be much easier.
At miles 832 I passed Chimney Rock (see photo) – this officially marks the end of Middle Earth VA and ushers me into Doah VA. This is the last of the VA and will end just prior to Harpers Ferry WV.

Today is quite hazy and foggy. I have been hiking in the clouds. There have been several views but all of them have been white with clouds and almost no visibility to the valley below.
Second picture below is of the meadow from yesterday’s hike. It was beautiful.
Thanks for all your comments and prayers. God is faithful.
