The terrain wasn't difficult but very rocky and hard on the feet. We took a break at Compton Gap and got some trail magic! An older couple questioned us about thru-hiking and gave us some almonds. Then a day hiker came out of the woods and saw us and asked how we were doing. Bear Bag said he'd be better if he had a cold beer, and the guy responded by offering us sodas (diet Squirt, haha) from a cooler in the back of his truck. Nice yogi-ing, Bear Bag! We finished off the last few miles to Tom Floyd Wayside shelter, exiting the national park on the way. The Shenandoahs were pretty "flat" and not very difficult. We got some awesome views and got to see lots of wildlife as well...it's been enjoyable!
The water here is a loooong way down a steep hill...not what I wanted to do after hiking 23 miles! But, I got my water, cooked dinner, and am sleeping in the shelter again because I didn't feel like setting up my tent. My feet felt better today than they did after the 23.9 miles 2 days ago so that was nice. And tomorrow is a "short" day...only 18.1 miles! Ha!
