Want to document and share your hike with friends and family?
Just a quick recap of a town day/zero day.
Quick assessment of myself: I did better than expected so far. Sound funny? Well, this was a new environment in a lot of ways so I really wasn’t sure. Physically in good shape. Calves a little sore. Feet in surprisingly good shape with no blisters, which are common for thru hikers. I credit that to a combination of my shoes, wearing Injini toe sock liners, and lightweight gaiters to keep most of the dirt and dust out of my shoes.
(Second picture - is that really me?)
Next stop is Silver City, NM, about a three day hike.
