Day 78

I hiked just shy of 22 miles today. Tonight I am camped next to a cascading stream. I sleep best near places like this.

It was a sunny, warm and pretty humid day today. Only a small portion of the trail still had flowing water and deep mud on it. For the most part the trail was in good shape considering the days of massive rain previously.

Most of the hike was in thick forest today. It was a beautiful forest though, the most amazing yet. Just the large size of trees and their spacing set it apart. Sky Meadows State Park was nice. Also walked through some more civil war areas.

Ran across a few day hikers and section hikers today. Overall, it was a pretty quiet day and I really enjoyed it. Saw a number of deer, orange newts and a few lizards.

I am having the time of my life out here. There are soooo many amazing things that are in front of me. I still can’t believe what I have done and experienced so far.

You too will now have memories that are meaningful to you in this area.
