Two AT training hikes, and bought some gear
The other section I hiked was in southern Pennsylvania from Snowy Mountain Road to Caledonia State Park - an out-and back twelve mile walk over some very rocky trail - what did I expect from a ridge called "Rocky Mountain"! Here's a sample: I call this 'hole-in-the-rock':
On one 5.5 mile section here, I had the great pleasure of crossing paths with a group of about 80 first to twelfth grade kids from the Anchor Christian School, a Mennonite affiliated private school near Shippensburg, PA. Virtually every one of the kids from the school were there, and completed the hike before being treated to a picnic feast at Caledonia State Park. That's where I had my pic snapped with a few of them:
Great week, great progress. I'm stoked to start this adventure!
