9+ miles with a full pack again at Greensfelder today. At first the hike was easy, even going up hill. But after about 7 miles it got tough. The pack got heavier, knees and ankles began to get pretty sore. And then during the last 1/4 mile of the hike I run into one of these guys standing in the middle of the trail!
However, this isn’t his picture, he ran away too fast. In fact, my fox was much bushier and bright red-orange. What a sight!
