Day 54


View from Sunrise

Both of us woke up feeling surprisingly well, so we hopped out of camp pretty early. It was another sweltering day but we had very little climbing to do. We wound through forest all morning before popping out at a cool pavilion atop Sunrise Mountain. Shade and a nice cool breeze made it our lunch stop.

After lunch, more forest walking down to Branchville, where we stopped at another tavern. Today, we wisely stuck with Cokes before heading back out into the sun.  A few more little climbs, including the lovely Rattlesnake Mountain, and we reached camp. A sweaty, hot meal for dinner made me wonder if it was time to switch to cold dinners…
