It was a rough day. I had the steepest longest climb I have had yet on the trail. My pack was as heavy as it has ever been since I had food left over from last resupply and there were more rocks. The trail was so steep that when I stopped to catch my breath I had to face up hill and lean forward or I was afraid my pack would tip me over backwards. Memorial Day weekend brought out lots of day hikers. The trail was clogged. It was hot and humid 90 degrees but fortunately the trees have grown in and they provided some shade on the trail. Lots of Arnicare tonight.
