I woke up feeling well rested after my rest day. Also, the weather was beautiful. I found a cooler of trail magic about 9:00am. It was mostly beer but there was some Arnold Parmer tea that I took. It was pretty good. This is the first trail magic I’ve seen since I stayed heading south.

The trail was nice rolling hills (mountains??) staying between 3000 and 4000 feet in elevation all day. I saw a bear a little after lunch time. He took off fast running through the woods. I think I scared him pretty bad. This was my longest day yet with 31.6 miles. I found a great campsite with an awesome view on the top of a mountain.
