>We stopped three times on our hike. The first stop was at a rock so that I
>could have a shoe-off break The second time was to admire the new Ed
>Garvey shelter. This is without a doubt the nicest shelter I've encounterd
>on the trail, ever. It is consructed of heavy logs, built to resemble a
>traditional shelter on the first level and with a magnificent Alps-looking
>2nd level, which is accessible from the rear of the shelter by walking up
>a steep staircase. Clever design provides a spacious and pleasant
>upstairs, featuring good light and a "balcony" with a large window. The
>balcony's rail sports the AT symbol in it.
>Our final stop before reaching our campsite, was Gathland State Park,
>where we enjoyed some cold drinks before moving on.
>Darkness was approaching as we pressed on, each determined to make it to
>the Dahlgren Campsires this evening. We made it there just as it was
>getting dark. Spur set up the tent, while I prepared spaghetti.
>We cleaned up the cook gear and then took showers at the comfort station,
>nearby. It felt great to have a shower. It had been a very humid day and
>promised to rain that night.
>We wrote our journal entries, with silent flashes of lightning
>periodically brightening the night and the sound of a man reading from The
>Hobbit to a group of enraptured young campers, who'd set up next door to us.
