Always a bit alarming to see a sign like this…then we passed a landfill !
Hard to believe the weather was completely socked 2 hours before when we left Pearisburg this morning (1/2 mile visibility).
View from inside the Rice Field shelter where we stopped for a break / snack.
Leaving the shelter over the cattle stile. One of the best settings for a shelter I’ve seen so far!
We haven’t officially entered West Virginia (~400 more miles), but we hiked along the border much of the morning.

Some brief Rain showers came in the late afternoon. This is the bridge over Stoney Creek

We saw a lot of folks slack packing southbound today as people are getting ready to head to Damascus for trail days (along with 25,000 others). The benefit to this is that there was only one other person at the shelter tonight 🙂 Time for bed…good night!
