I had wanted to hang out and enjoy the summit and beginning of the trail, but we hightailed it outta there. Most of the day was on the Approach Trail. Bout 9 miles up to the top. Since my mom is with me and she's never done this before we had a slightly slower pace. Probably good to warm up anyway!
I'm feeling great, my newly refurbished boots felt pretty good. Mom is hurting a bit, but hopefully nothing that a good nights sleep won't heal. No blisters yet.. That's worth something right? The shelter is kind of loud, I might resort to earplugs but I don't want to be unfriendly
Last day in Naples was great... I met up with Daniela my friend from chile and we went to the beach. What's the last thing you want to do to your back before hiking with a pack? Yeah I got a monster sunburn... Like a lobster.
No trailname yet, but there are lots of people without one. Not much phone service but that is not really a priority, I kind of want to escape all you losers! ( haha not really, send me emails or texts are probably best.)
Its beautiful to be on the trail, I wonder how long that sentiment will last.
