Today was a 22 mile hike to the Allentown Hiking Club Shelter.
The climb out of Port Clinton was steep in a few spots but not too bad. The hike today was on a lot of ridgelines. There were a lot of rocks and scrambles today. I really had to watch my footing and take my time. Hiked all day with Bluebird.
Came across an Astronomical Park. Might be fun if I was in the area at night and got an invite.
Stopped and had lunch at The Pinnacles. It’s a rocky overlook, there are not many overlooks in PA. I was thinking we would see a lot of rattlesnakes and other venomous snakes on the rocks, but did not see any. Did see a number of deer, baby bunnies, eagles, toads.
I fell on a piece of wet grass in a flat area today. Just slipped. I am fine. Not even embarassed. Bluebird fell in a rocky area and bent a treaking pole. Bluebird was not injured, was very lucky.
Pennsylvania is throwing what it can at us. Luckily there is still water on the trail, even if its limited and the temperature is moderate. Folks hiking here later in summer may have a tougher time.
