Out of Virginia

8 May 2014 (Day 65) – I walked into my 5th State yesterday and will walk out of it later today. West Virginia has the least miles if any State on the A.T. I also passed 1000 miles on my way into Harpers Ferry. The halfway mark will come soon.

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy has its headquarters here in Harpers Ferry. It’s traditional to stop in, have you photo taken and be told what number thru hiker you are. I’m 72. Hundreds will come through over the course of the hiking season.

Current Location: Harpers Ferry, WV
Current Map Location:
Miles Walked: 1019.0
Miles Remaining: 1166.3
