A long day in the hills…

Hello from Everett PA. Today we biked from Boonsboro MD to Everett PA a distance of over 85 miles. Todays ride consisted of many hills, as we have now hit the Appachalian mountains. We departed Boonsboro shortly after 7:30am this morning after packing up and eating breakfast. At around 40 miles we stopped for lunch and a swim in the lake at Cowans Gap State Park. The hills seemed to intensify after lunch growing longer and steaper.  About 16 miles after departing Cowans Gap State Park we stopped for a water break and fed the horses and ponies on the side of the road. We then continued to climb capturing many great views as we made our way through the mountains. With about 10 miles left in the day we stopped at McDonalds for ice cream sundaes to refuel ourselves for the final leg. We are currently staying at the Everett United Methodist Church where they fixed us dinner of lasagna, scalloped potatos, beans and salad along with pie for dessert. Tomorrow we head to Mt. Pleasent on another 80 plus mile day thats sure to be full of many more hills and possibly our first rainny day of the trip.
