9 days home reminded me what I’m missing. Although I love nature, wilderness camping and hiking it pales in comparison to great friends, family and grand children. So when I got back on the trail Monday in Shenandoah wilderness guess who was there to greet me. Yes 2 more black bears; this time I was able to take a picture.  I think They must have missed me when I was gone. Now I’m looking forward to Harper’s Ferry, the psychological half way point. Should be there on Saturday.
