Posts Tagged ‘Through Hiking’

We were out at the 25th annual Trail Days festival in Damascus, VA this weekend. There is a very good reason that Damascus is known as the friendliest town on the Appalachian Trail – the town pulls out all of the stops for this festival and welcomes through-hikers with open arms year round. I was in Damascus at Mojoes Trailside Coffee two months ago and the entire town (there are only 1,066 full time residents) was talking about the first through-hiker who just walked into town that morning.

Anyway, here is a short photo collection of our time in Damascus this weekend!
