Hiking in the Shenandoah National Park

In May, 2018, KC and I spent a week in the Massanutten Resort, where we used as a base to drive up and down the Skyline Drive and hiked on various trails inside the National Park or on the Appalachian trails.  We had only a couple of rainy days when we ended up visiting the Harrison burg.   The trails we did included Stony Mountain, Stony Man, Little Stony Man, Betty's Rock Hawksbill Mountain, Hightop Mountain, Loft Mountain, Rose River Falls, Dark Hollow Falls, Doyles River Falls, Jones River Falls, Big Meadows, Bearfence, Ivy Creek Overlook, Frazier Discovery (buggy!), Blackrock, and Little Calf Mountain.

I think that KC will always remember that the duck tape I carried in my backpack saved her hiking boots, whose sole came apart when we were on the Rose Rive Fall trail!  She managed to get the sole put back together by a shoe repairman in Harrison burg for only $20.  The guy shined it so beautifully.  They looked like new!!




Before we arrived back in Reisterstown, we stopped by to visit the Harper Ferry.  The Shenandoah  River was flooded.
