On days 1-17, I’ve received trail magic three times. This morning there were four trail magic spots. It was fun to see what each one had to offer. Two were just water but at times that I really needed them. One was a very well stocked first aid kit attached to a tree at the top of a mountain miles from any road. I didn’t need any first aid but I did enjoy using a QTip. The other one was a cooler full of fruit… Awesome!

The AT in New York is almost never flat. It is constant steep ups and downs. Hopefully it is getting my climbing legs ready for NH and ME. I decided to camp near a shelter. Unfortunately, no one else was there except a friendly deer.
