July 19 – My last day of walking on Pennsylvania rocks is complete! My feet hurt and my leg muscles are sore but my shin is much better (I am finally hiking with two strong legs).
Some boulders today, lots of small sharp rocks, and some challenging trail. I’ve attached a few photos of the trail today. The overlook is a special one to me – the River is the Delaware – on the left of the river is New Jersey and to the right is Pennsylvania.
Two goals met today: First was to finish PA. (Only 0.3 miles to the NJ border tomorrow) Second was to reach the Countdown Marker putting me less than 900 miles to go – Delaware Water Gap puts me at 895.7 miles to Katahdin!
I hope to reach 1300 miles hiked tomorrow.
