Today I hiked from Bryant Ridge Shelter to Apple Orchard Falls, a distance of 8.5 miles. The hike included a 2,000 foot climb, so it was slow going. I am trying to ration my cooking fuel to make it last until I get to the next town. I’m trying to get through the Spiritual Exercises starting today. It’s been difficult to focus my thoughts, so I’ve played through some of the worship music I have saved on my phone, but I’d like to transition to spending more time in silence, we’ll see how that goes.
