Wiley Shelter

Posted by on May 8, 2017


Pretty cold last night but no snow!

If you ever wondered what happened to balloons that we see fly off….they don’t go into outer space! Here’s one in New York I found on the trail..!!
The other pic is of the Metro station on the Appalachian Trail.. 15 bucks and you can flag the train to stop and take you to New York city… you can find anything on the trail !!
I hiked 16 miles today and my dogs are barking… It’s one of those times the shelters don’t line up and you either stealth camp or hike the distance. Still rained again today but not bad. The worst was all the mud that didn’t have planks to walk on…..I’m alone tonight and it’s pitch !!! I saw one thru hiker today…much faster than me so I only saw him for a few minutes… It’s 8:30 and I’ve been here an hr. Enough time to haul and filter 3 liters of water and heat up some Ramen…too tired for anything else…!!! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    Keeping you in prayer my brother! The Lord is with you…although I pray he sends forth a companion soon… Take encouragement in St. Paul’s words to the Philippians “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Phil 3:14 … Love the pictures, I miss the beauty and smells of spring in that part of the country… Gods Peace… Fr.Greg
