|Peace Love Hike|
The ascent trail SOBO was smoother than I imagined it would be. Many in the area are rather steep when leaving a road crossing. Although the climb was uphill with my new pack, the long switchbacks helped greatly. I misjudged the weather completely. One would think that living 15 miles down the road I would have a better handle on how to dress for the climate... guess not. I wore too many cold weather items and brought nothing for the rainstorm we hit on the return trail. Made it back to the car soaking wet, cold, and covered in mud. Ahhh... training for the A.T.
