June 5 11:55 am
The day began with some rain but God’s natural umbrella (the canopy of the forest) kept me quite dry. Now the sun is shinning and the wind blesses me with a cool shower from the trees.
I am at mile marker 597.8 on the top of Brushy Mt. Why stop just before the 600 mile marker? But cause it is the top of a mountain, I am in need of a break, it is beautiful, and I have cell phone service. The photo below is not spectacular but it is where I am right now.
600 miles before lunch is the goal!! Feeling great today and just enjoying the hike. I saw three beautiful deer during the morning trek and look forward to lunch at a shelter about 2 miles down the pike.
God is faithful. Blessing to you all.
