Great Dismal Swamp Wildlife Refuge

Great Dismal Swamp Wildlife Refuge

Today we spent a few hours walking 8.5 miles in a perfectly flat, perfectly straight line. Apparently hikes in eastern VA are basically long walks in the woods! I’m used to WA, which involves climbing mountains and navigating switchbacks. It was a gorgeous day though, and we were rewarded with a view of Lake Drummond, a lake with an average depth of 3.5ft. Of course there was a lot of great conversation too — what better way to get to know someone than to walk over 8 miles on what is basically a service road?! :)
