Lots of thunder and lightning and rain last night. The tornado alarm went off in a local town, but I was safe in my tent. By morning my rain fly on my tent was almost dry – God is Faithful.
Despite the rocks I was able to hike 18.4 miles today to a nice campsite. No trail blessing today and no outstanding views from rocky overlooks to post, but the trail was beautiful and provided some black raspberries for a tasty treat.
To be fair to the Keystone State not all of the trail is filled with rocks (I have heard that the best is yet to come). I had some nice, flat, smooth trail along with some rocky path (the photos hopeful reflect the contrast).
The pack is still hanging in there as I treat it with care and caution. Please continue to pray with me that I can make it to Port Clinton with a in tact backpack.
