Appalachian Trail:: Date Adventures
Kent and I love to make sure that we get at least one adventurous date a week. This has been hard for us the past few weeks due to the crazy pollen levels. On Wednesday we decided to brave the outdoors full force. We packed up and drove an hour away to a part of the Appalachian trail off of 501. While driving through the beautiful country side of Lancaster County with the windows down, we listed to Mark Driscoll podcasts. This prepared us for some awesome conversations on our hike.
We are big on conversation, always have been, and hopefully always will be. It wasn’t hard for us to have a blast talking and walking down crazy rocky trails (which we honestly didn’t expect them to be so rocky.) I loved hearing Kent’s heart about what he was learning lately. He truly inspires me with his wisdom and servanthood. Way to carry my flowery backpack for me!
We discovered that we aren’t extremely woodsy people…we like it to an extent, but we prefer a more dirt path than a rocky one. We called ourselves armature hikers, because of the really intense people who would pass us here and there (their hiking poles and all.)
