Walked with a group organized by Joan Young from Croton Dam to 40th St. I added a few more miles by continuing on to 28th St. where I left off yesterday. Joan is the first person to hike the North Country Trail, the Fingerlakes Trail, and the Buckeye Trail. She also was the first female to finish the North Country Trail. Plus she knows like every tree and plant you could possibly see while walking around here.
I finished the day by seeing the amazing porcupine trees and a barred owl in a tree 30 ft away at just 10ft above the ground. Perfect sighting and end to a great walking weekend.
Over 55 miles for the weekend. I CAN do this. Let’s go CDT it’s almost time.
