Delaware Water Gap! It’s 9:30 a.m. and here we are at the Pennsylvania-New Jersey state line!
It’s halfway across the bridge across the Delaware River – on I-80! The trucks rumble by, inches away from us beside the concrete barrier, the bridge shaking. Only on the AT! Oh my!
Our three-hour walk this morning included the last of the Pennsylvania Rocks, a lily-pad pond, and a tunnel of rhododendron flowers! What a fitting flourish for the end of this section of our walk!
430 trail miles, three complete states (WV, MD, PA), 36 days.
Now, for a month of family visits and preparation for our next section from Delaware Water Gap to Killington, VT and completion of a second traverse of the Appalachian Trail!
Thanks for reading my blog!!!
Stay tuned for the next chapter starting in August.
