Well, my younger sister was my trail angel today. She picked me up and brought me home to heal. Home…it is so strange being home. It feels completely premature. I really didn’t want to leave the trail, but it was evident I needed medical attention. Basically, I was on my way to getting trench foot. After further diagnosis, the open wounds on my feet are infected. Leaving trail was so very difficult for me, but, I am very hopeful I am only on the mend for a few days. 1600 miles and so close to the finish…optimism is key right now. I will climb Katahdin. If its the last thing I do!!
