Day 3 is in the books! Today wasn’t nearly as interesting as yesterday. I did see 4 horses/riders on the Moorman River trail. That trail is pretty spooky – being right on the edge of the park there are more ruins along with lots of barbed wire and posted signs. I saw an old schoolbus that must have been there for years! I also noticed that some of the leaves, sugar maples especially, have started changing colors. Should be some really pretty views up here in a week or two.
The knee still feels pretty good. I’ve decided the key is going to be to take it slow the first 2 weeks (its a marathon, not a sprint), stretch a lot, and keep wearing the magical knee strap!
I’m the only one at the shelter right now but with it being a holiday weekend I don’t expect it to stay that way for long! Hoping for some good company before tomorrow’s true backcountry night!
