I CAN’T BELIEVE I WENT UP THAT SECTION AGAIN! But I did and it was way less scary. That’s a very good thing. I was getting apprehensive about my ability to complete sections that are years ahead of me. Not so good at staying in the present sometimes.
We had to be vigilant. There were icy spots, mostly in flat areas, thank the gods. Although, they caught me by surprise a few times. I only fell once. Getting out of my car!
The hike was confusing for me. It looked so different. The mountain is trying to heal from the poison dumped there.
The walk had an eerie feel. Like I shouldn’t be there or something. It appeared that pine trees have been planted. Maybe between 5 and 10 years ago. There was only grass, some rocks, and the lonely pines. Eerie. Sad.

I’m beginning to bore myself. You must be really bored. I need an overnight. The plan is 3 days and 2 nights hiking NOBO and completing half of New Jersey. Maybe 3 more right after, if the weather looks good.
I think that will stoke my fires again. I don’t feel connected to the Trail anymore. I’m not a part of the community anymore. I don’t like this.
