CK goes out for a walk...
Adventures on the Appalachian Trail

Sept 4 CK crosses into West Virginia from Maryland. 

The West Virginia leg of the trip is 2 miles. The Trail passes within a few 100 yards of the ATC headquarters before crossing the Shenandoah River, and continuing into Virginia. Thru-hikers think of Harpers Ferry as being the psychological half-way point of the Trail - even though the actual half way point is in Pennsylvania. (In southern Virginia, in the Peters Mountain area, the trail goes briefly along the West Virginia-Virginia border.)
