Friday, April 18: This morning, we go for a hike at White Oak Canyon in Shenandoah National Park. This four-hour hike follows along a flowing stream and leads to some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the park. This is the best time of year to go on this hike because of the high water levels from the spring melt-off.
The only bad thing is that I’m exhausted from an overnight stay Thursday night at American Sleep Clinic. I’ve been having sleep problems lately, and last night at the clinic was not at all restful as I was hooked up to a bunch of wires. I am wiped out before we even start out, and the fact that the first half of the hike is uphill doesn’t help one bit.
Luckily, it’s a beautiful day, weather-wise, with a nice cool breeze. Sadly, the green hasn’t really come out on the trees yet, so it’s a little browner than I would have liked. But we do find a few glimpses of color here and there.
Needless to say, when I return home, I take a long hot bath and then drop off to sleep for an early night. 🙂
