July 8 – There was not much elevation change today but the challenge of tip toeing through the boulders in hot weather made today’s hike seem long. I have only put in 16.1 miles but I am stopping for the night – the next campsite is 8 more miles and I don’t think I am ready to walk that much more today.
I decided to take the half gallon challenge last night in Duncannon (see before and after photos) The Moose Tracks are gone and tasted great!
Coming out of Duncannon I crossed the Susquehanna River. After getting on top of the ridge to view back down on the River was quite lovely.
Pray – I discovered this afternoon that my strap on my backpack is ripping away from the pack itself. I called REI and they are sending a new to Point Clinton and it should arrive on Friday. Please pray the my current pack will stay in tacked during the next few days until I reach the town.
