Whew, a day off! To put our riding into perspective, and for all my Chico, CA friends, each of our last 7 days of riding have been equivalent to starting in downtown Chico and riding to Paradise and back three times in a row up the Honey Run road! So today was a very welcomed relief. The town of Damascus in a nice little town and is at the crossroads of the Virginia Creeper Trail and the Appalachian Trail. The Creeper Trail originally was used by Native Americans, and then by Daniel Boone, and then later by the railroad to haul timber.
