Hiking the Appalachian Trail: Trail Days in Damascus VA
On the morning of Friday the 14th I arrived in the town of Damascus VA. This charming little mountain town, with a population that might just pass the 1000 mark, played host this weekend to the 2010 Trail Days festival. For the past week people have been arriving, by car, by bus and by foot, swelling the town’s population well past 20,000. Thru-hikers from this year, many who have hiked sections or the whole of the trail and generally anyone who enjoys the company of the long distance trail community have come to spend the weekend. Basically, this is our Woodstock.
