March 17 St Pattys Day we took off !

From Harpers Ferry WV with my hiking pal, Dave Hedrick. We went 7.3 miles straight up! Stayed st the Ed Garvey Shelter. A guy was killed at that shelter just s few days earlier when a tree fell on his head. Freak accident. We aren’t worried. Beautiful weather. View of the Potomac from high on Weverton Cliff. Temp below freezing st night. Water froze on the ground. Just a little nippy. Met lots of nice hikers midshipmen from the Naval Academy I taught her to play the nose flute. She learned right away.
We’d 3/18. We hope to make it to Dahlgren shelter tonight. Showers. I hope they are HOT showers.
