  • Day13

    Shenandoah National Park

    June 19, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Ich verliebe mich immer mehr in die Frühstücksdiner. Eier, Pancakes, Bacon, Bratkartoffeln und unbegrenzt Kaffee und Wasser und je mehr man im Land ist, desto größer die Portionen und günstiger der Preis.
    Carb-Land, wäre perfekt für dich Christoph 💪

    Ich bin auf dem Weg durch Virginia und habe spontan in einem Nationalpark gehalten. Ich sitze grade vor einem unglaublichen Wasserfall und laufe hier ein paar Wanderrouten. Auf dem Weg hierhin, abseits des Highways, ist es eig am schönsten mit den weitern Feldern und den ganzen Farmen und einzelnen Häusern. Das muss man eig gesehen haben. Notfalls Far Cry 5 spielen, spielt zwar in Montana, ist aber ähnlich. 🤘

    In jedem Fall breche ich jetzt wieder auf und lasse euch mit den Fotos alleine, auch wenn die nicht ansatzweise das einfangen können, wie es ist.

    Vielen Dank Christopher, Sebba und Christoph für die Nationalparkkarte. ☝️💪

    Antietam/ Harper's Ferry/Shenandoah

    November 9, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    I left Pittsburgh pretty early to get a jump on the day. The original plan was to go straight to Harper's ferry but I kept seeing signs for Antietam Battlefield and realized I was only 5 miles away. So of course I went. Hell yeah spontaneous road trips. The bloodiest battle in American history. 23,000 dead in 12 hours. That's crazy. Their movie was really interesting. Narrated by James Earl Jones. Then I continued to Harper's ferry which was much cooler and more interesting than I thought it would be. It's a really old tiny Town in West Virginia with 200 years of really important history. From the slave trade to Lewis and Clark to the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement. There is so much to see and learn but I wanted go get to camping before dark and it was starting to rain just a little. So I chose to focus on John Brown. That's where he led the raids that jump started the Civil War. His fort was renovated in 1910. Really interesting place. I could have spent days there learning about US history. Then I drove another 2 ish hours to a campsite in Shenandoah. I saw a tiny black bear cub!!!!! cross the road just in front of me. I looked around for the momma but didn't see her. It seemed weird to me that there was a bear that small this time of year. Shouldn't that happen during the spring so that the bear is big enough now to survive hibernation? I'mma do some googling tomorrow. But anyway. It's a little bit rainy. Thankfully we've avoided rain this far and it's not supossed to rain tomorrow. Hopefully it'll just continue to be misty tonight and not hit too hard. I was in 4 states and 3 national parks today!

    Sorry these all posted way late. I had no service for a while.

    More adventures tomorrow!

    Big Meadows

    May 6, 2007 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Vandaag van Front Royal, via Luray (en het Zoo-tje) naar Big Meadows gereden. Big Meadows ligt halverwege de Skyline-Drive. Op Big Meadows hebben we een zware klim gelopen naar een waterval en lekker gespeeld op de Meadow. Onze standplaats is sprookjesachtig. De SRV-wagen staat op de uiteinde van een berg met een grandioos uitzicht (en kans op beren in de nacht). De campings zijn nog erg rustig, de eerstvolgende camper staat enkele tientallen meters verder. Het stikt hier trouwens van de Wild Hogs (mannen van tegen de vijftig, dikke buik, goat-sikje, verse tattoo, veel vrienden, doekie om het hoofd, spijkerbroek met hangkont, leren pijpen, peukje, snelle zonnebril, cowboylaarzen, te kleine tent en de onvermijdelijke te grote Harley).
    T’is stralend zonnig, maar (zeker ‘s nachts) aan de frisse kant.
