Stopping at Pine Grove Furnace, PA
Pine Grove Furnace is considered by some to be the midpoint of the AT and has ice cream for celebration in the summer!
This was taken in early November, 1998 with my son's Boy Scout troop on a weekend backpacking trip along the AT. The only dangers that weekend were for the boy in the middle "falling over" and for all of us, avoiding the hunters on the adjoining land.
The adults weren't tired after dinner that weekend but the younger kids asked if they could go to sleep as soon as it was dark. We looked at our watches; it was only 6:30 pm! Goes to show you that a little exercise in cool weather tires young pups out kinda early. And yes, that's me with an old external frame pack!
