Hiked along the ridge and down into Port Clinton. It was more of the same: mud, rocks and heat. The last mile was a 1,000 ft descent to the Schuylkill River. Wow!!
It’s also prime deer hunting country here. In Hamburg, where I’m spending the night, is the world’s biggest Cabela’s. They even have a gun range.
