Georgetown 10K

We went down to Georgetown and started walking at 7:20 just as the sun
was coming up. It was 79 when we started. I forgot to check the temp when
we finished but it was hot. We had cloud cover for awhile but when the
clouds started breaking up it got hot.

Note: The Visitor Center doesn’t open until 9am. I had a set of directions
from a previous time, so we registered after we finished walking.

When we got here we stopped Volksmarching to do some letterboxing.  If you are interested in that post here is a link.  http://walksfarletterbox.wordpress.com/2013/08/24/letterboxing-georgetown/

When we finished letterboxing we returned to the Volksmarch route and finished our walk.
