“Tomorrow should be another short one as well.” Not!
I tried, but I couldn’t do another short day. I woke early and decided to try to make two shelters ahead. That coupled with an 11 mile day tomorrow will get me into Damascus a day earlier.
I’m at Old Orchard tonight and will press on through Grayson Highlands tomorrow. I promise to take lots of photos; there were none today. The highlight of my day was a 10 min trail side nap. 😴
