July 4th weekend

It was a good long weekend. Today Zach, Emily, Lisa and I went hiking on the Veach Gap trail in George Washington National Forest, which is northwest of Shenandoah National Park. The day was overcast, but it didn't rain.

A view of the Susquehanna River from the overlook at the end of the hike:

Where there were also lots of wild blueberries to eat!


And we saw a bear! No picture of that, though.

Looks like a nice hike. Did you camp on top?

Nope, but I'd like to at some point. The campsite is great, right behind where I took that picture, and the area is lightly-used -- on a holiday weekend Sunday, the only person we saw was a trail volunteer with a chainsaw clearing the blowdowns.
