Wet and Still Walking

NJ / NY Line

(Phone Message Transcribed by Bethany)

Good Morning! It’s Sunday July 29, 2007. Lauren and I are calling from a pay phone in New York at mile 1,370. We crossed into New York yesterday morning and it’s kind of hard to believe that we’re even here. We were looking at the data book and we have just about 800 miles left of the Appalachian Trail, which just blows my mind.

Little Dam Lake

I didn’t know what to expect, but so far New York has been stunning. The rock formations have been big slabs following the ridge. Today the rocks took us by surprise, we’ve had to climb up and down and up and down and quite a few rock falls and it’s been very challenging. The weather is humid and hot and for this reason Lauren wishes she had packed her hair dryer, jokingly, so that we could finally get dry! We’ve been wet for basically the last 48 hours at least! We expect to be in New York through the end of the week and probably reach Connecticut by August 1.

The Lemon Squeezer

That’s it for now. Over and Out.
