We had some wet weather to contend with, which afforded me the opportunity to try out my new poncho.
We had pretty miserable conditions, but the poncho kept me dry, except for my legs, which got thoroughly soaked in an outright downpour near the end of the hike.
I foolishly packed my camera down in the bottom of my pack, so I didn’t get any pictures, but Apertome did.
I’m particularly pleased with the smart fashion statement the poncho makes in the woods. Very “Odhinnic-Wanderer chic,” with just a hint of un-dead superhero.
Fashion aside, it was a very nice hike despite the weather. It put me 10 miles closer to the State Forest Hiking Award. 14 miles down, 784 to go!
Apertome has posted a nice write up of the day on his blog. I don’t think there’s much I could add to his account.
