The heat lamp is officially back on for one hot day as the PA rocks finally started coming on full blast after a nice long stop at Eckville Shelter for drinks and ice cream from the caretaker’s porch refrigerator. More rocks to look forward to until Delaware Water Gap, though the good news is that my feet have improved pretty dramatically, despite the rocks, since cutting my pack weight down to around 22lbs with 3 days of food plus water. I hope my foot health keeps up even though everyone’s feet are hurting a little extra with all the miles of rocks on the trail today. I can’t wait for the weekend at the Water Gap–new socks, new pack to replace this piece of junk I’m returning, and fun with my sisters and Jamie!
