The famous Pennsylvania rocks have arrived. Day #5 was bigger miles (15) through mud, burned out forest, and the trail was full of rocks. That made for slow going. It took 12 hours of hiking in the heat to finish. It was type III fun. (Not fun during and not fun in retrospect.). That being said, I did make it.
Sorry there’s no picture. I was too busy cussing out the rocks. 🤬
Tomorrow’s a shorter hike (~10 miles) into town for a day of rest. I’ll be reviewing my trip in town too.
