Cool Hike

Posted by on October 7, 2013

The temperature was 49 degrees when I stepped onto the trail yesterday morning. I thought I would try out my fleece. Three miles into the hike I was soaked from the waist down because of the morning dew and soaked from the waist up because I was sweating buckets. I was way overdressed with just a fleece. Hiking provides its own heater. I have to remember if I’m comfortable when I start hiking, I have too much on. Once I packed up my fleece, hiking was perfect!

I had the trail all to myself and my thoughts were on the emails that I have received from people the live near the AT and are already giving me words of encouragement and hints of possible trail magic as I make my way north… People are truly amazing!

    Thanks for the update. We find that’s true when we go on the 3 mile Deschutes river trail. If we start comfortable, then we need to have layers that are easy to peel and carry! Keep up the good work. Blessings.
