Left Waynesboro about noon today and hiked south to the Paul Wilfe shelter. It was only 5.1 miles, so it was an easy day. Tomorrow I will tackle Humpback Mountain and then try to cover some more distance before I get to The Priest. I’m a little worried about the climb there. It’s 3,200 ft over 4 miles. Yikes! It will be one of the major climbs of the trek.
