Hiking along the Appalachian Trail brings back memories...

This trip along the Long Path is allowing me to take a detour or an approved alternate path on the AT to High Point SP in NJ. From there I turn north to the Shawangunk Ridge Trail and reconnect to the Long Path.  
Well being back on the AT in NY reminded me that there is never enough water to climb these rocks. Rocks!!!! In NY!!!! I actually forgot all about them. Probably because the last time I came though here I was in much better shape.  Just about the entire path from Harriman SP to Vernon, NJ on the Appalachian Trail has been covered in rocks. It's like they decided that the AT would hit every rock in NY.  "Look there's a small rock! Put a blaze on it!"

Despite the rocks I've been able to increase my daily mileage to about 14 or 15 miles a day. Not bad considering I'm not in shape. 

Lindsay has come to pick me up from the trail to give me a day's break, and well deserved. Every part of my body hurts.  Getting some rest has helped as I'm now ready to get the rest of the this trip moving.

Here's some of the pictures to this point.
