Day 73 Keys Gap Campsite to Keep Tryst Rd (7.0 miles) 1026.6 miles
Finished VA and WV today. 5 states down…9 to go! Staying in Knoxville, MD at Knights Inn.
I like American History so while heading into Harpers Ferry I was imagining John Brown and his boys sneaking in to raid the national armory there. Then I got to the bridge that guessing they didn’t use.
Harpers Ferry is the mythical halfway point of the AT and the home of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. They have a hiker lounge with chairs and sodas. Take good care of hikers.
I was NOBO hiker #1391 leaving Springer Mtn, GA. Hiker #737 passing thru Harpers Ferry (includes SOBOers). The staff said that’s a lot for this early in year.
Below is picture at Jefferson Rock overlooking the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. Jefferson got to stand on top of rock in right of pic. People not allowed up there these days.
Next stop is Waynesboro, PA. 38 miles so 2-3 days depending on how heat wave goes.
