Day 40

Day 40

Mixedup Apr 27th, 2022
Mixedup's 2022 AT Thru-Hike

I hiked 24.5 miles today. It was supposed to rain all day but ended up raining only a little bit and I was sitting in a shelter having lunch at the time so that was super nice. It was a lot cooler today than the last 2 days which was also very nice. I passed the 600 mile marker today, oh yeah, let’s go. I crossed over a suspension bridge today which was kinda cool but it was shaking pretty much the whole time I was walking on it, kinda sketchy but normal I guess. I went 0.3 miles off trail to see a waterfall that people said was super cool. It was a pretty nice sight but not worth the extra 0.6 miles round trip to see it. If it had been really warm I might have gone swimming but it was kinda cool at the time which is nice for hiking but not swimming. I haven’t showered or washed my clothes since day 33 so I feel pretty disgusting but hopefully I’ll get into town tomorrow and get that stuff done. Tomorrow I start out the day with a kinda big climb up a mountain but that’s a good warmup for the rest of the day. Looking forward to it.
