We were up early. I’m always up early. I grabbed a leftover pork chop, cut it up, and mixed it in with some instant mashed potatoes. There is no “breakfast food” when I’m out here. It’s pretty much all just food. I actually love dinner for breakfast!
Scott and I only took a few photos during the walk. Many of the flower shots in the last post were taken today.
There were lots of Red Bud trees.
See that tree daring to be different? Love stuff like that. Take that, boring White Pines!
Scott likes me up front so he can just walk and not look for blazes. Me, I’m a blaze finder. I feel safe with every White Blaze I see. Just realized this… I get a little “lift” with each one. I wonder if other hikers have that same experience???
It rained lightly off and on. I love this shell. Cabela’s. Super light and dry. Green seems to be a strong hiker color for me. Bright green. My shoulders are shrugging as I write this.
Just damp lovely woods and back to Scott’s truck.
I can’t believe that 10 miles is a relaxing walk now for me.
On to Day 3! The day I finish the Section of the AT fro New York to Harper’s Ferry, WV.
I’m a little sadder than I am excited about this. I have to stop hiking now and get ready for our 3 month stay in Cape Town.
It will be great to see family. It’s been 2 years since my last visit. Thyroid surgery to remove Cancer kept me in the States last year. Landi went without me.
I need to write more about this SA vs USA subject in the future. On to Day 3.
