Sunday, June 26 - Day 94 - Mile 1070.8 - Rocky Mountain Shelters
We had a great night last night. Wonderful sleep and ready to go. After we turned in, both Team Indecision and Steady came in. We hadn't seen Steady since Damascus so it was a wonderful surprise this morning to see her. Steady has to take a couple of weeks off to have her hearing aids reworked but I bet she'll catch up to us again.
Also had a chance to call home and make sure everyone arrived home safely from Harpers Ferry. They had and all were celebrating our Grandaughter Claire's 9th birthday which is today.
The weather today was again perfect for hiking. We started out at 6:22AM with Team Indecision and chatted with them until we got separated. Maryland threw quite a rock scramble at us as we left the State and crossed the Mason / Dixon line into Pennsylvania. Again today the woods were beautiful.
Tonight we're actually using the shelter since there are no tent sites. It's begun to rain so maybe this will work out well. Again getting water was a hike in itself. We seem to be adding many miles which don't count!
I called Anne & Paul Reeve who have graciously agreed to host us for a night on Thursday and give us a chance to re-supply and clean up. We have been so fortunate all along the trail. Nothing spurs us on more then good food, clean clothes and a shower.
Now, if I can just learn to stop falling life will be perfect. I haven't set any records in this area but it does get old.
Love, Peace, Joy & Hope,
*Note from Beth to Dad - Yes, please stop falling!
