The last week has been amazing! In our previous post I wrote about our plan to start increasing our daily mileage after Trail Days. Not only was Trail Days a success, our plan to increase mileage is working out great. We are averaging over twenty miles a day and are taking two lower mile days at resupply points. A big thanks to Turkey, Chris, Rob, and Mike for helping make Trail Days a great experience. Another thanks to nature for making each mile on the Appalachian Trail so beautiful.
One thing we are noticing more and more is the abundance of wildlife on the trail. Squirrels, chipmunks, birds and other small animals are all over the place. We have become experts at spotting things while hiking. Picking up trash along the trail has helped us become much more aware while in the woods. We often spot the little animals that go unseen. Below are some photos of a few animals we've seen while packing it out. I hope everyone has a great weekend and don't forget to Pack It Out.
