The beginning of the hike was a little bit yucky. It was
drizzling, damp, and chilly, but that didn't deter us. We had to
bend a rule by going on a trail for a short distance that was
closed because of tree clean up from the recent storms. I
wasn't sure why they had it marked off because there wasn't
anything in the way. The sun started to come out a little bit so
the views weren't too bad. The fog added mystique to the
scenery. Once we got moving, I was tough and wore a t-shirt
We did a loop around Sugarloaf Mountain. Jared made Helen
carry around his very heavy water bottle in her backpack.
After he finished drinking all the water, he was man enough to
carry it the rest of the hike. Near the end of the hike, we went
to the top and relaxed for a little bit. I warned everybody about
snakes but I guess they weren't out since nobody died.
Everybody was friendly and had a good time. There was lots
of talking and hopefully some friendships were born.
Afterwards, we ate at Bassett's Restaurant in Poolesville,
Maryland. Once again, thanks for the recommendation,
Shelley. Great food.
