day 3 begins!

Just a quick update this morning!  Day #1 was our travel day. Up at 3am traveled to airport with family and PG as chauffeur.  Day #2 was our “trail hazing” with rain, hail, ice falling from trees,  a strong wind and soaked through. We stayed at Hawk Mountain shelter setting up a wet tent in the rain and climbing into sleeping bags to warm up. So only about 5 miles.  Today we will do 7

miles to Gooch mountain shelter then Saturday to the 30 mile mark where the outfitter is and our first food drop.   This is so much fun!  More in a few days.

About dragonfly2013at

Years ago i was walking in nature and a dragonfly landed on my hand. My hiking companion commented,"Change is coming in your life." Indeed, it was! I worked in business where pumps were the fashion. I left it for work where orange shoes are appreciated. This suits me. I love what I do. I just need a break to refresh and so I am! I am the 4th of 11 children. Years ago orange shoes assured that I would not be left behind (we moved a lot)...or suffer face first in a snow drift for too long. I will wear orange laces on the hike. Orange is not in hiking boot fashion at this time. Blessings on the journey. Dragonfly
