Week before last, I spent a couple of days camped in the travel trailer at Shenandoah River State Park. The first day was devoted to a hike in the nearby Shenandoah National Park. There was still some snow in the mountains making walking difficult in places, and it was colder than we anticipated, but what does one expect in February. Another thing about hiking in the mountains: how is it that we walked a five mile loop trail, ended up where we started, and it was ALL uphill. It defies the laws of physics (pass the ibuprofen).
The next morning it was raining. This week, a walk in the rain along the Shenandoah River.
