June 12 @ 4:00
I made it yesterday to the most photographed spot on the AT with the possible exception of Katahdin itself – McAfee Knob. It was pretty special. After a photo shoot, I hiked on and arrived at a shelter about 7:00 pm. I decided to sleep in the shelter with 2 other hikers. Good thing because God decided to light up the sky and water the earth with heavy rains about 10:15. The light show was spectacular from inside the dry shelter.
Today was a wet and foggy day. I hiked about 15 miles over some beautiful but rugged terrain. I arrived in Daleville, Mid-VA (mile 724) this afternoon and have been to Kroger for my resupply. I am spending the night here – right across the street from my motel is a Pizza Hut!! Nothing more needs to be said.
I love the incredible magnitude of God’s creation (photos from McAfee Knob) as well was the delicate detail of the wildflowers (I think the picture is of a Fire Pink).
Thanks for you continued prayers as my wonderful journey unfolds on a daily basis.
