We hit the trail a little before 8am to sunny skies. The weather threatened all day, but we only got a little rumble or two and some sprinkles in the late morning. We did some road walking (the trail took us that way) and crossed over I-77 early on.
We had some minimal views later.
Most of the day was pretty easy and nondescript hiking. We ended up camping by this creek after about 22.5 miles. There is a small grocery store about 1/2 mile away that we hiked down to and grabbed some extra snacks and soda. Well worth an extra mile of non – trail hiking! Tomorrow we are planning to hike about 15 miles or so to a place called the Woods Hole Hostel, which has a really good reputation.
