Today was a long exhausting 62 mile day. As we left Cumberland it started to rain and we got covered head too toe by mud from the trail. Fortunately for us, after our first break the sun came out. At lunch we found the bridge that we had jumped off of last year and decided to jump again.
The bridge was about 30 feet high and extremely intimidating. The boys, being so brave, jumped right in without hesitation. Julia was so scared that we had to push her off the bridge. Julia screamed extremely loud but after the first jump she realize how much fun she had. Julia screamed extremely loud and scared away all the local wildlife.
After lunch we found a giant black snake on the trail. Colby tried to grab it by the tail but it was a smart snake and almost bit him. When we finally made it to realize that we would be sleeping in a chicken coop for the night. To cheer us up from a long exhausting day we went to Weaver’s, a local restaurant known for its delicious pies. Now we are all stuffed up on pie and ready to hit the road for Gettysburg tomorrow.
