August 5th

Today I hiked from John’s Hollow Shelter to Punchbowl Shelter, a distance of 8.8 miles.

I enjoyed some solitude today, I was alone at the shelter last night, and only saw one person while I was hiking. When I got to the shelter tonight there were two other hikers there and it’s been some pleasant conversation.

Today I listened to the audio book for The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton. I was touched and inspired by his story of seeing God’s grace retroactively in his life of pain and struggle. I was also a little homesick when he was speaking of the beauty of Kentucky in the spring. I’d like to take a retreat at the monastery he lived at in central Kentucky at some point in the future Today I hiked from John’s Hollow Shelter to Punchbowl Shelter, a distance of 8.8 miles.
