This is a pic I meant to post yesterday. It’s the Eckville shelter (cabin in back right). It’s a 100yds down the way at a road crossing. The main house is an AT caretaker’s residence. This was quite the little lunch oasis. Someone had left homemade brownies plus I got to dry my tent in the sun and charge my batteries.
Those trail conditions deteriorated quickly…as the rock dancing began. The best comparison is that it’s a lot like skiing the bumps. You need to keep searching for a good line and bad things can happen when you lose your forward momentum. You’d be surprised at the size of boulder one can make teeter while walking across it.
Wish I had gotten a person in this pic to give these boulders some perspective… they are huge.
We did get a view of Lehigh Gap and the Lehigh River.
This post apocalyptic scene is enhanced by the lack of all vegetation that was the result of toxins from a zinc plant that closed down 30+ years ago.
