Miles hiked today 30. There you go
We passed beautiful lakes/ponds. Some had beaches of sand, others of gravel.
And we were most surprised by this staircase. We could not believe someone had gone to all the trouble to put it there. We had to climb steeper and much more difficult banks than this one. Go figure!
About 10 miles into our 30 miles the trail changed. Our easy walk became a hard hike. Foot placement became all important. There was no more looking around and gazing. It was watch where you walk. It was lift your knees high enough that you don’t trip. It was exhausting.
We made it to the lake where we set up camp at 7:15 PM. The sun was setting and we put our tents up pretty much in the dark. It was a very, very long day, but I was excited that I put in 30 miles in one day.
