Day #125-New rain adventures aboundeth; Miles hiked: 17.6

It has rained for almost half of my thru hike, but today marked a new adventure: cold rain. This was the first time it’s been both raining, windy, AND 40 degrees. Needless to say, it was pretty difficult to leave the hostel and start hauling up a mountain in that weather.

It was too messy to take pictures, but we climbed a few sizable mountains and ended up in a campsite with a large church group.

Based in a nearby town, this church’s youth group goes backpacking once a month. What a way to teach kiddos about Creation! I enjoyed joining them for worship and Bible study.

Goodnight from a damp trail shelter!
