May 17 2015 (Day 74) – I’m drying out in Hamburg, PA. The last 2 days were brutal for hiking. Heavy rain, slippery rocks, and flooded trail have conspired to make my hike eventful. Likewise, the dreaded Pennsylvania rocks have finally arrived – big, small, sharp, leaf covered, and interspersed with roots. They’ll slow my pace over the next week but it’s all part of the experience.
There’s a HUGE Cabela’s across the street. Hundreds of stuffed animals create a diorama where polar bears, moose and white tail deer live in harmony. They carry some hiking gear and I was happy to find replacement rain pants in a tall size.
