Mt Algo Shelter

Today was pretty tough. It was only 13 miles but a few really long uphill climbs, lots of rocks. I thought I was in Pennsylvania again. I’m sore right now but that will pass… and walking for 2.5 days in rain has left me with a severe case of chafing. I would send a pic, but there is no one to take it….it’s probably best that way for all concerned. I made it into Connecticut today… only 5 states left! For a minute I thought I was having some trail magic until I realized it was just some fancy balloons telling us we are special for hiking I guess….no food or drinks… Pictures are of the fancy balloon with no trail magic, the scenic view where I stopped for lunch, and the crossing into Ct. Tomorrow I hike into Kent Ct. for my food drop box then back onto the trail for 8 miles, half day…. I desperately need a shower but I’ll take care of that in 3 or 4 more days!!
