Wiley Shelter 16.6 miles
Total mileage 431.5
Today I started with dry socks, shoes and a smile. It was a beautiful day today. I saw sunshine and temperature was perfect for hiking. It started out in the 50’s this morning then got into upper 60’s for the high this afternoon.
The day started with a walk around a beautiful lake with easy terrain. I saw 2 deer in this area. I’ve been seeing a few deer in NY.
Then I walked through a swamp and over a boardwalk.
I later came to the train stop that takes you to NYC. As I was crossing the tracks, I noticed that the train was coming. Close to thirty people must have gotten off at this stop and most of them with backpacks.
I braked for lunch at a landscaping center right next to the trail. They had cold drinks and ice cream for sale. Of course I had an ice cream.!😉
I my feet, ankles and legs felt really good today and I was able to average more than 2 miles per hour. It has been a while since the terrian has allowed this.
