August Appalachian Trail Photos

These photos were taken in August, between Delaware Water Gap and Clarendon shelter.

From my journal:

“The area around the shelter is beautiful, with stately hemlocks everywhere.   I have setup my tent, although I expect it might rain some during the night.   In addition to my group, Skip and one of his friends are here at this shelter.   I always like to see Skip and talk with him.   Bigfoot is here, too.   Skip is talking about doing a “flip-flop” to Katahdin and returning south from there.   I am starting to consider a similar strategy.

Toba sat down on a log near me tonight and announced she had decided to leave the AT and return home to Manitoba tomorrow from Great Barrington.   I was sad to hear this, and know that we will miss her.
