Beautiful Hiking @Harpers Ferry

Hiking the Appalachian Trail, oh so glorious. 

The only photo not shown is the large snake we ran into on the rocks on the side of the path.


My wife screamed:


“S-n-a-k-e!”


And we were running for the hills in this direction and that.


We had no idea where she was pointing to.


It was pretty hilarious.

Tubing Away The Shenandoah

Tubes

This is a picture from today of people tubing gathered under the Harpers Ferry Bridge in West Virginia.

The hiking along the Appalachian Trail was incredible and the water was warm when we waded in off the river bank.

I have never seen it so busy on the Shenandoah river.

People were rafting, tubing, swimming, huddled on tubes together talking and singing, picnicking, and laying, relaxing, and suntanning on the rocks in the middle of the river.

What a beautiful day–thank you G-d.
