Trail Days 2013

Trail Days

I missed this a few weeks back, but apparently¬†60 people were injured at this year’s¬†Trail Days, an annual Appalachian Trail celebration held in Demascus, VA. An elderly woman drove her car into the crowd during the Hikers Parade. No one was killed, thankfully, but what a tragic way to start off the thru-hiking season. If anyone has more info about what happened or the status of those injured, we’d love to know.

    Definitely a scary experience and a freak accident. Luckily I was at a booth during the parade but some good friends were spooked and came within a couple feet of the car. From what I hear all the injured are OK now though.
