4 months of hiking in August 1986
Fifteen months later, I was back there again, completing my northbound Appalachian Trail hike (and spotting a few more moose on the way), but this time the views were limited and the weather deteriorating. After four months of hiking it was, nevertheless, a profound moment in a spiritual place.

I managed to comfortably walk 10km for exercise this morning, including some significant hills. I felt good all the way and spent the last half rationalising a return to gentle jogging next week assuming my INR blood test shows my anti-coagulant levels are in range.
