Today we went hiking, it felt like everywhere! We hiked in three states: Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. MY LEGS ARE BREAKING!

All our hiking was on the Appalachian Trail (AT). The trail goes mostly in forests and on mountains, but sometimes it passes right through towns. It is 3,500 kilometres long. We followed white blazes, usually on trees.

In Pennsylvania, near Boiling Springs.

I went on the bus to go to Harpers Ferry because it is an old, small town and there is no room to park. I had ice cream and I walked over the railroad bridge, which is part of the Appalachian Trail, too. In Pennsylvania, we walked right over railroad tracks on the AT!








I climbed a tall mountain in Maryland to a high cliff! It was rocky and there was no fence around. The view was AMAZING!! We ate a picnic on the cliff, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.








When we got down, we hiked a bit more on the AT and even crossed under a highway. Then I went to a Mexican restaurant for supper. I HATE SPICY FOOD!!


I can’t wait for day three!


A Day of Driving and Luckiness

A Day of Driving and Luckiness

Today we finally left for West Virginia! We are going to Civil War battlefields and hiking on the Appalachian Trail.

I found a nickel in the candy machine at Walmart in Syracuse. I am lucky! Most of the day was driving. BORING! We went through two states: Pennsylvania and New York.

Dad found a hotel near Harrisburg, the state capital of Pennsylvania. Luke kept chewing Mike’s head. I slept with Pink Pig, my stuffy (see photo above).

I can’t wait for day two!
