Wayne, Judy, & Freeda traveled to
Harpers Ferry, WV, to pick Karen up
after she decided to get off the trail.
It’s been three months since mama
and daughter have seen each other.
Scarf-in-law (Judy), Scarf, & Nails
Scarf and Nails register and get their
photo taken at the Appalachian Trail
Conference Office, the half way point.
Registration at the A.T. office proves
they’re not lost in the woods.
This 3D relief map gives a graphic
aerial portrayal of the terrain through
six states.  It looks so easy on that
8 foot map!
“Did we really just walk 1000 miles?”
We enjoyed lunch with Scarf & Nails
at the Country Cafe restaurant.
Karen discovers lots of good
information at the A.T. Office.
On Friday, we joined Scarf & Nails
to walk the last mile in Harpers Ferry
and crossed into Maryland.
The trail follows a section of the
Shenandoah River.
Mom gets a feel, if only for a mile,
of what Karen has been experiencing.
Wayne, Nails, and Judy near a
locally famous “balanced rock”.
Scarf surveys the view out over the
Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers.
We explored the town of
Harpers Ferry which has
several historic buildings.
The main street in the “historic
section” of Harpers Ferry.
Brother Scarf and Sister Scarf
pose in front of one of the many
amazing rock walls in Harpers
Ferry.
The A.T. crosses this bridge from
West Virginia into Maryland.
The Shenandoah and Potomac
Rivers converge here.
Wayne and Karen crossing
into Maryland.
Wayne, Judy, and Freeda can now
honestly claim to be section hikers
since they hiked .9 miles in Georgia
and 1.5 miles in WV and Maryland.
Nails and Scarf ended their journey
together by reaching the first white
blaze trail marker in Maryland.
Nails will be continuing northward
with new partners planned along
the way.
On Friday evening, we were joined
by Nails’ husband Rich and nephew
Patrick for dinner at the Hilltop Inn
Restaurant.  Patrick will be joining
Nails for the remainder of the trip.
As a parting gift, Karen gives Nails
a journal to use for recording their
future adventures together.
It was a bittersweet farewell between
Nails and Scarf.  Although only friends
for 3 months, their experiences
together has forged a deep friendship.
Wayne, Freeda, Judy, Nails, Scarf,
Rich, and Patrick at the Hilltop Inn
Restaurant Lobby.  A night of
celebration .... and goodbyes.
