Today is travel day…
And yes, as always, it’s raining ☔️ ; But I have my trusty OR Helium II rain jacket and umbrella too!
Started out downtown (Central West End, St Louis) and took the Metrolink to the airport.
Then SWA to Philadelphia.
But flight got delayed over 30 min due to storms. So wasn’t able to make the early train.
Then the Septa train to downtown Philly.
Amtrak to Harrisburg…
And then Uber to the trail.
I ended up hiking past Clarks Ferry shelter and I am stealth camped on top of the ridge looking over the Susquehanna valley towards Harrisburg Pennsylvania.
