#23 - Maryland - Backbone Mountain - 3,360 feet - an easy 2 mile round-trip hike up an old logging road
#24 - Pennsylvania - Mount Davis - 3,213 feet - another easy 2 mile round-trip hike through the beautiful woods

#25 - West Virginia - Spruce Knob - 4,861 feet - only a 900ft. hike from the parking lot so we then added a 10 mile hike on the nearby Huckleberry Trail to make it a little more difficult.
I feel slightly (just slightly!) guilty about these easy ones but we deserve it after many difficult high points out west and several more to come.
Shenandoah National Park - We took a quick trip and a quick hike in this beautiful National Park. A place we definitely want to spend more time at in the future. So many trails, overlooks and waterfalls. Skyline Drive runs right through the park.

PA here we come!
Til next time...Happy Trails!
