Friday, May 13 - Day 50 - Mile 488.2 - Elk Gardens
Today we finished our hike back to Damascus and met Family and friends for Trail Days. Tomorrow, May 14th we'll "0" here then hike on Sunday morning from Elk Gardens where we were dropped off on Thursday.
Buffalo Bobby was able to return to the Hostel we were in earlier in the week. We'll get together tomorrow for the fun and then get back on the trail Sunday morning after breakfast.
I was surprised by my Son, Jim, Daughter-in-law Jen and Granddaughters Claire & Anna. We had fun catching up a bit and they will stay for tomorrows festivities.
Our Daughter Beth, new Grandson Edward and Grandson Logan as well as my Daughter Marylou, Son-in-Law Scott and Granddaughter Bailey will also be here. The Crabtree's, Don & Carolyn will round out the crowd coming to spur me on.
