Today was a momentous day.
All the springs and streams are flowing with Yuengling (I was hoping for Troegs or Weyerbacher, but hikers and/or beggars can’t really be choosers and all that stuff). The woods are filled with the scent of pierogies and halushki. The roads are filled with Harleys and beat up Camaros. The people say “yous guys” or “yinzers” instead of God forsaken “y’all”. Ahh home sweet home. Funny enough, the first water source we hit in PA had a warning sign to not touch it at all because it had been contaminated with wastewater a couple weeks ago. Not only don’t drink it, but don’t touch it! Ha it’s good to be home.
Anyway, the actual hike today was pretty easy again. Maryland did its best PA impression and gave us a slew of rocks to hop on, but we laughed at it. We eat rocks for breakfast. Annapolis Rocks had a nice morning view.
Otherwise, it was a pretty uneventful day. The weather was great for hiking and it feels awesome to be in the home state.
