Today I left Chestnut Knob Shelter early morning. First part was through an open field on top of the ridge.
Then it was down and over several other ridges to the Quarterway Inn. Did 14 tough miles today. I have a blister, but will save you the agony of a picture.
It’s a hostel; I got a hot shower 🚿 and laundry 🧺 done. Breakfast was amazing.
And now magic! There are thousands of fireflies 💡 around the hostel. There are twinkling ✨ lights everywhere!
