Through the Woods, Not Over the River - Day 360

  Today, I walked a very new piece of trail through the woods tthat replaces a great deal of roadwalk. It was hilly, but the biggest challenge was to get across this stream. I know, it looks like the aftermath of a landslide, but there's water rushing between those rocks. Those rocks that are covered with ice and snow. But I made it without getting any wet feet or other body parts.

Then I dropped down to follow the Sturgeon River, but not cross it, for the last three miles.

Finally, I caught sight of the Camelback Bridge, my destination for the day.

The warm days have melted a lot of the snow. I think these natural collages are as good as any at craft fairs.

I guess I've reached the point where I'm always hungry. Someone left me a big sugared donut in the woods.

We were met at the end of the day by Connie from the Peter Wolfe Chapter. She brought me a pair of better gaiters to use, and some better bags for wading. Then she took us out to dinner!

That all took time, then I had to mend the gumby pants (they and I have to last 2 more months!), work on logistics, and finally blog. Tomorrow could be tough, so I need to get to bed soon.

Miles today: 7.0. Total miles so far: 4148.5.

Those snow covered rocks look like they could be rough to cross. I'm betting you could seriously hurt yourself if you fell there too.

Ann- yup. I'm trying really hard not to fall.
