This is the beginning of the parade where everybody gathered. I didn't dare take pictures once it started because of the water fight between hikers and town people. We drenched each other, and they waited for us to funnel by and pelted and soaked us, too. It was a lot of fun and felt great because it was hot outside.
Odyssa was awesome and I am very glad I went to hear her. I got to meet her, too, and got a picture with her. She is a great storyteller and I hope lots of people who would never have ventured onto the AT, do so because of her.
