Walked the day with Aussie today, whom I’ve walked quite a bit with over the last couple of days. Had the shelters (2 on one site) all to ourselves last night–the thru-hiker void continues. Another beautiful day of walking in PA–perfect cool weather, very nice trail, and an awesome nap this afternoon in Caledonia State Park next to a creek. Pennsylvania certainly has some wonderful shelters so far, including the one we’re at for the night, which is brand spankin’ new, and one we saw earlier today complete with several hanging flower pots. Tomorrow, it’s on for a short day to the Half-Gallon Ice Cream Challenge at the trail’s half-way point, as well as a switch to a new pack and an ultralight setup–very exciting!
