Today is all about resting my poor ankle. I'm not sure what else to do, but Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation(RICE). After being active for over twelve hours per day, laying around all day is torture. Things might be easier if I had wifi, but that is not an option unless I walk a quarter of a mile to Dunkin Donuts. I've packed and unpacked my bag half a dozen times, repaired holes and tears in my gear, planned out the rest of my trip, and I've read two books. One of the books I read was pretty good. It was written by the previous AT record holder, Jennifer Pharr Davis. Becoming Odyssa, is the story of her first thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. I enjoyed reading her prospective about the things I have seen and experienced.
After having so many days off my hiker hunger has finally been satisfied. I'll spare everyone the boring details from my day. Instead of giving you the commentary of laying in bed all day, I thought it would be fun to post a few of my favorite pictures from along my journey.
I hope everyone has enjoyed this walk down memory lane.
