We're stopping through Bears Den Hostel, which is temptingly luxurious — as, actually, a number of shelters and hostels have been already. However, we're still in press-onward mode, so no showers-and-pizza-and-ice-cream-and---. It's very castle-like, though and fun to see.
Outside (however), we've been hiking through lots of pretty scenery (slow internet and a note saying not to upload photos here, though), including young forests, and overlooks, and cool windy weather. We're just starting the "roller coaster" - a notorious section of the AT featuring lots of ups and downs.
