Rock is a four letter word. – Janet Ridgway
I left the RV at 5:38 AM this morning I was awake before, but I was waiting for it to stop raining. It rained all night long. So I had a very wet trail this morning.
The first thing on the agenda was to climb like normal but this was a climb! Poles were put away and it was a rock scramble up – lots of fun. I was drenched in sweat within 15 minutes. The picture below is straight up.
When I reach the top it was time to hike across the ridgeline. Within minutes my feet were soaking wet and my shorts too. The rain from the night before had drenched everything leaving water droplets everywhere.
I looked at my map and saw there was a possible place for Hugh to meet me for lunch!. So I text him and he said he could do it. It was lovely seeing my guy if even for a short amount of time and getting a nice chicken sandwich to boot.
Physically I’m doing pretty good. My hands are no longer hurts. My knee gets a little stiff at the end of the day where I landed on it. But overall I’m hanging in there.
Tomorrow I will be in New Jersey. I’m getting Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen loaded up – ready for my hike into New Jersey.
