This morning it was so hard for her to say the words I could see on her lips!! She hurt to much to keep going. Even tho she encouraged me to continue there was no way I’d ever ever consider that. What we needed was a trail angel! We packed everything up hiked back to Sunken Mine Rd. I stuck out my thumb and the first car stopped… our trail angel was here. Amazing! He took us 20 miles to get us to a place where we could rent a car and get a hotel room. Abbie said she needed a horse to continue so I got her the one you see in the picture!!
We are in Albany NY tonight and will return home for her to calm her aches… she is a bonafide city girl!!
I’ll be back again to finish the trail… approx 700 miles next year!!
TO BE CONTINUED!!!!!!!
