Which is frustrating when the morning holds the promise of town food. Make that the afternoon. And by town food, I mean a gas station with a take out window. This is what I have become: excited beyond belief to eat gas station food!
And there we were- about 10 of us stretched across the sidewalk in front on the gas station convenience store with pur boots and socks drying in the sun, eating copious amounts of food and picking at our foot callouses. I ate 2 big pieces of pizza, a cheeseburger, 2 ice cream cookie sandwiches, 2 20 oz cokes, and a snickers bar. Did I tell you I'm losing weight like crazy?
After lunch, we hiked across a field and began a 2500 foot climb to the most photographed spot on the entire trail: McAfee's Knob!
