I am the older woman with the orange pack and red fleece jacket that was hiking with my son. You seemed to be alone and an avid hiker as it was a COLD morning! I would be interested to see if you would like to hike together sometime. My son has gone back to Buffalo and I'm looking for partners to hike with. Right now I'm mostly interested in doing the AT until I have most of it in SNP done. At least to Harper's Ferry. I know side trails have more vistas. I'm planning a hike on May11-12 from Elkwallow to Skyland. PM me if you see this.
