Hiking Shenandoah, Nicholson Hollow/Corbin Cabin Cutoff

Hiking Shenandoah, Nicholson Hollow/Corbin Cabin Cutoff

“Or, How to tell you’re the Old Dude in the group!” Last Tuesday we hiked Nicholson Hollow Trail from Skyline Drive (mile marker 37.9) through Nicholson Hollow (1350 feet elevation loss) to the intersection of Corbin Cabin Cutoff. This hike is one that takes you down and back through layers of history with many relics of past residents. It’s a fairly steep descent following what starts out as a dry stream bed and soon becomes…

I recently moved away from my first expat home in Leiden, a little city you’ve probably never heard of nestled between Amsterdam and The Hague in the Netherlands. And even though leaving Leiden for me meant beginning an adventurous and obscenely cheap trip through the Balkans and then London, I’m still drowning in nostalgia and missing this…
