Appalachian Trail Mile 1,023.7

Sunday, July 17, 2017 (Day 75)

I walked through some neighborhoods, taking in the colors and shapes of the buildings. I visited the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. I watched as people gathered about the rotating Hope Diamond, waiting eagerly for it to face their direction so that they might snap a photo with their phones. So many people.

It was a beautiful day, outside.

I was careful not to miss my train this time. I was happy to be enroute to Harper’s Ferry. I engaged in inspiring conversation with the lady who was seated beside me. The future holds so much possibility.

I found a lovely spot by the river on the outskirts of town. I slept on a bed of sand.
