18 May – 11 June

Destination: Hitching Post Country Motel (1482.5)
Start Location: Lehigh River South Bank (1260.5) 222.0

On Sunday, Bob’s wife, Janice, and daughter, Nicole, picked us up at the Hitching Post Country Motel in Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut, for our return to civilization. With the Saturday night stay at the motel we were showered with clean clothes.

Bob and I hiked 222 miles over 25 days, averaging 9.3 miles per day hiked. We had one zero day. We ascended over 40,000 feet or nearly one and a half times the height of Mount Everest. We ate lots of pizza and deli food.

Below are some links to plants and animals seen in the photos as well as links to other items mentioned in the narrative.

Below the links is a table showing daily mileage with links to maps of each days hike.
