Days 15 and 16 mark the end of the trail portion of the trip and find our heroes leaving Blackrock Hut for a strenuous 13 mile hike to Calf Mountain shelter. They settle in their tents for a cold night hoping it won’t snow. No such luck. The final hike in Shenandoah National Park is white and wet.
The team will take a two day hiatus at Wintergreen while they gear up for the river. Stay tuned.
