Location: Wawayanda Shelter

Today's Miles: 18.7

Total Miles: 1361.5

 

Woke up to an empty shelter this morning. Everyone left super early to avoid the rain that never came.

 

Walked a few miles to Unionville, NY for a resupply. Store had a grill in the back and makes bagel sandwiches in the mornings. Ordered two, bought my groceries, sat on the front porch of the place and ate my second breakfast with a cup of coffee.

 

Rest of the day was good walking, differing terrain abounded. Did some road walking, walked through some fields, walked past a bunch of ponds, and had a few really good views as well.

 

Stopped at a wayside in the afternoon for some ice cream. They were out of ice cream but did have some homemade donuts. Grabbed a half dozen and some milk for a nice little snack.

 

Passed by a music festival before climbing the 'stairway to heaven'. Stopped in for a few minutes before being overwhelmed and having to leave.

 

Today was the day of bears. Saw one this morning, another in the afternoon, and the final bear on the way to get water. FYI, New Jersey *totally* has bears.

 

Tomorrow, New York!
