5/24: Catawba, VA

Hello all,

Wendy here with another post from the trail. Today we conquered an awesome part of the trail- Dragon's Tooth! It is a short blue blazed trail that leads to two massive stone monoliths. They are perched on a hill and overlook a massive valley. The view was incredible! We also got to climb all over both of the rocks, always a favorite hobby of Breeze and I.

Next was the trip to Catawba. We had plans of leaving town after a quick bite to eat, only to be warned later that the Hpmeplace restaurant could not be skipped. Ever eager for all you can eat, Breeze and I hopped into line and quickly got seated. We opted to pay $14 each and enjoy unlimited roast beef, fried chicken, and all sorts of tasty country cooked sides. Wow did we get our money worth! Not only that but we also got unlimited peach cobbler. Wow did I punish my poor stomach! Needless to say, we weren't feeling like hiking after our dinner so we opted to camp behind the grocery store tonight. We will head  first thing in the morning to the grocery and leave town early the next day. 

Until next time,
