Day 109: Jersey Rules

Publish date: Aug 23, 2019

“I am loving New Jersey!” is a sentence I never thought I would say. After the rocks of Pennsylvania…well Jersey still has rocks, but at least it has views! We’ve walked through exposed ridges, boardwalked bogs filled with birders, hemlock forests… And everyday there has been some fun distraction: a lake to swim in, an amazing trailside tavern, a past thruhiker who lets us tent at his property and feed his donkey Jake, a town that lets hikers camp at their drive-in theater. AND I saw my second bear!

So Jersey, you win this one.
