Today was perfect hiking weather – overcast and cool. And finally, a day with few rocks on the trail, much appreciated psychologically. Even came out of the woods for a change!
At noon, I stopped at small cabin that the owner makes available for hikers. He has electricity and well water, both nice features.
In the afternoon, I saw my first bear in New Jersey, a cub. He took off as soon as he saw me, and I did the same, looking around for mama! Reached the shelter area by 5pm, dinner of potatoes and Spam, yum, and cookies for dessert. Goodnight!
