  1. I finish up PA hiking across Cumberland Valley to Boiling Springs


    On this hike, I finally finished up PA! This section between Cove Mountain and Boiling Springs was completed as a number of day hikes and overnights. The 1st day, I slacked from the Parking at PA850 up Cove Mountain and back (10.5 miles).

It rained a little ...

    Had an opportunity to go on another quick section. This time I went South to Pearisburg to hike up to the Rice Field Shelter. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while on a cool clear day to see the sunset. This trip did not disappoint! After a long drive down, I chose to stay overnight at Angels Rest Hiker’s Haven (hostel / campground). They were very well organized and the facilities were clean and the people there were awesome. I’d highly recommend ...

  5. Phillip’s Canyon Campsite to Eagles Nest Shelter and Sand Spring – AT PA


    Day 3: After a night of storms and an odd encounter with a Mennonite hiker, KrizAkoni continues South on the AT with Southbound long section hiker Brant & Garvey (Garvey is Brant’s dog) and “Sweeps”. The group continues South about 5 miles to Eagles Nest Shelter for second breakfast and then continues 1.5 miles to Sand Spring. A large black snake surprised Sweeps. We continued South another 5.7 miles and then parted ways with Brant and Garvey ...
