Write Up:
It was a beautiful day for a hike, if a bit on the gnatty side (thankfully, only when we were on grass, which was only at the very beginning and middle of the hike). It was a nice hike that also didn't demand much in the way of sunscreen, as we trudged under a canopy of leaves nearly the whole way--journeying literally from one Civil War battlefield to another (or at least, from one part of a battlefield to another, all on South Mountain). Auspiciously, we ended up all in one piece and thankfully had no need for Civil War medicine.
