Today I am paying the price for all the miles I did yesterday. I just finished climbing my second mountain for the day and I am tired, very tired.
I met one through hiker on the trail this morning
I’m not sure how far I’m going to make it today but there is a swimming hole at the next road crossing and I probably will stop there.
Update: the swimming hole was awesome, although I stayed clear of the snake in the water. I hiked another 3.2 miles (and 1,000 ft elevation gain) to the Cove Mtn shelter – total 11.9 today. My companion for the night is awesome as well.
Miles from Mt Katahdin, ME – 1,436.4
Miles from Harpers Ferry – 269.8
Miles to Springer Mtn, GA – 752.8
Avg daily distance – 10.4 miles
