I had hoped to get one more hike in before the cold weather and my pause in hiking. My plan was to take one last hike in the middle of October and get in some of the fall colors. Three days before my planned hike I fell while rollerblading with my son and dislocated my shoulder. So my hiking season ended earlier than I planned. As I did last year, I will be going back to previous hikes and working on writing about those adventures. And when the weather begins to get warm again, and the days get longer I’ll be back out on the trail heading west on my end-to-end quest.
