Noon. After a night in the Super8 Motel, we walked back to the trail, 1/4 mile away to the pedestrian overpass on US Rt 11, a 1,185-mile long highway from Canada to New Orleans. The AT crosses it down in Daleville, VA as well.

2 p.m. we took a break at Scott Farm Work Center, where John and I reminisced about our Ridgerunner Training held here in 2010. The path headed north was lined with daylilies!

3 p.m. the tunnel under PA 944, a good example of a successful partnership project for constructing the AT. PA 944 is a major commuter route, so the engineers did meticulous planning to shut down the road for only a minimal number of hours to build the tunnel.

4:45 p.m. Our last view of the Cumberland Valley and back at South Mountain from Kittatinny Ridge.

Surprise! Another couple of miles through the next valley!

With a natural bouquet of flowers!

5:00 p.m. Back in the majestic forest and the mountain.

8 p.m. home sweet home under the tarp before the dark and the thunder roll in.

8:30 Before tucking in, we took a short walk to the near by “View”. Look! It’s the mighty Susquehanna River, our destination for tomorrow. Our first glimpse!

A day of scenic walking on the AT in Pennsylvania!

In joy,
