Why Wait!? - AT - May 31, 2014 - Journal Entry
Well, I got just what the doctor ordered... A walk on a long, long ridge with minor ups and downs, soft (mostly) underfoot with leaves and pine needles, a great dip in a beautifully clear river that ran through miles of rhododendron thickets, not too hot with often a gentle breeze --- we are camped next to a pond with a chorus of frogs and crickets lulling us to sleep... Tomorrow we will walk a short morning to Wood's Hole Hostel-- a place that is supposed to be a "slice of heaven"-- lots of heavens in this world!! And.. We passed the 600 mile mark today!
