I knew something was going to be wrong with our campsite because it was the only reservable one that was not reserved already. It was just that it is not level so you slide down the mountain all night, and also it is not that big because most of it is taken up by shrubberies full of ticks and spiders.
On Saturday it was a little rainy. We did the Big Run Loop trail which is 5.8 miles and 1100 ft elevation change and it elicited massive amounts of whining from the hike participants. We only saw a couple people until the connection with the Appalachian Trail where there were many skinny young people with scraggley beards.
"Check the map again because I am tired and so I feel that the hike should be over now so we must be going the wrong way."
Lenny has no complaints.
On Sunday it was nicer and we did the Rose River Falls Loop. I didn't think it was that much easier but there was much less complaining. It was rather crowded though and every now and then you would look back and see a pack of toddlers dressed in LL Bean fleeces hurtling towards you.
Here are some more pictures.
