Blackrock Hut, Va 20 Miles Hiked Today 861 of 2167 Miles Hiked Total

Caveman and Chinman at Shenandoah N.P.Hiked with Caveman and Chinman (a really nice guy). During a break in the afternoon, Zoom and Dirk showed up. Dirk was two and a half weeks ahead, but had sprained his ankle and gone home to Pennsylvania to recuperate. Trail Mix and Two Stepper are here as well, so its a great crowd.

So far, Shenandoah NP is better than expected. We crossed the road a lot, but we weren't as close to it all day as I was told. The bad news is that word is that two campgrounds are closed. This may mean I am short on food as I planned to eat at these. We're hoping that maybe the restaurants are open and just camping is closed. I'll know at lunch tomorrow as that was the first meal stop.
