Day #25 – Upping my game…

It’s about 10:30 in the morning and I just finished climbing Highcock Knob. They name things funny here; it must be because they eat too many chicken fries.  I am now 2,400 ft above the river.

Yesterday I ended up hiking 4 miles after crossing the James River. I camped next to a Brook and to my dismay, it was full of frogs that croaked it up all night long.  I woke up early this morning and hit the trail before seven.

It’s been raining on and off all morning but the temperature is much cooler today and there’s some breeze.  

I’m going to try to put lots of additional miles underneath my feet today and if all goes well I’ll be ahead of schedule.  My average mileage is now about 10 miles a day.

It’s 3:30 pm and I’ve climbed another 1,000 feet and the view from Thunder Ridge is amazing.
