Trail Magic Moments: 1
Today was freezing. It started off rather warm but a huge, quick temperature drop of over 20° in a few minutes changed things right away.
More fog and rain, plus even some sleet for a while made things very slow and slippery, but there was still some much needed magic! After breaking camp and setting up just off the trail, I came across an intersection manned by Fresh Grind, he had fresh water, fruit, coffee, kool-aid and to top it all off…FRESHLY MADE PANCAKES!!!! That gave me some much needed energy to trek on. Man, people are just amazing. Stuff like this never makes the 9 o’clock news.
I also came across a south bounder that started up in Maine and will summit Springer tomorrow, finishing his hike. Crazy! That seems so far away for me, but it’ll get here before I know it. For now, I’m resting in my sleeping bag trying to get warm.
Hope everyone is having a great day! I’d love to hear what you’re all up to!
