Hiking in the Shenandoah Mountains

While in Maryland, the weekend my brother and Elika came to visit, Danny, myself and Elika went for a hike in the Shenandoah Mountains. We woke up that morning and drove to see my Aunt/Uncle and Grandma and ate breakfast with them, then continued on another three hours to the Shenandoah’s.

Uncle John started goofing off, sitting on Aunt Teresa’s lap when I said I wanted a picture. Danny joined in sitting on Elika’s lap. It actually turned out to be quite the cute picture!

Elika and I climbed up on top of rocks to get a better view of the valley…

And finally, some flowers at the end of our hike.

We enjoyed our hike, but I was very tired by the end of the day. As we drove home we stopped at this little hamburger joint called Spelunkers to eat. The burgers were made fresh – no frozen meat, and they had beer-battered onion rings, and frozen custard. Such a yummy treat after a long hike. We figured we burned enough calories we deserved it!

Well, I am not sure if I will post any more blogs about my Maryland trip. I think I have pretty much covered everything now. We shall see.
