…And hike we did. Today my son (8) and I traversed the 1.64 mile Billy Goat Trail. It was the first time either of us had finished the strenuous trail. And it was a huge achievement for him to finish in 72 minutes. The BGT has some nasty drops and and requires jumping over some some fairly dangerous rock gaps and formations. But those areas also provide a stunning view of the Potomac. A beautiful winter day filled with warm MD sunshine!
