This past weekend I returned to the AT and hiked a total of twenty five miles. I only added onto my AT mileage 12.5 miles because I had to hike away from my car and then turn around and walk back to my car.
These are the clothes that I packed. My entire pack including food for three days and water weighed thirty pounds.
Some of the pathway that I hiked. I began my hike at Rt 301 in NY near Canopus Lake. I drove 7.5 hours to arrive at the parking area. Then hiked from 3:00 until 7:00 arriving at the Shenandoah Tenting Area. I met two young girls that were also camping overnight.
I hiked a total of six miles to reach my destination. I got my tent set up and used my new stove for the first time. It worked well but uses a lot of gas compared to my other stove.
The first night was cold and I had to sleep with my bag closed up in order to stay warm.
This was the view above Canopus Lake. It was very pretty.
