Annapolis Rocks

Impulse hike with Ted Conwell's merry band of truthsayers to Annapolis Rocks, an easy 2 mile walk on the AT to a great vista.

Unhappily, a UK visitor hiking the trail let his enthusiastic efforts to photograph the view overcome his common sense regarding steep cliffs. It might not have made much difference, but he got a full turnout of volunteer and professional help including the AT ridge runner, a Maryland Parks rescue crew, the Myersville Fire Department, an off duty EMT, a wilderness first aid certified hiker, an ER certified nurse, and two medevac helicopters.

We stayed out of the way, ate lunch sitting on another rock overlook further north, and reminded each other to appreciate every day.
