The steep ups and downs over the rocks and boulders increased and were continuous but MacGyver and I finally had our hiker legs in shape!.....but I must say, we went thru a few phases of attitude concerning "Rocksylvania":
1st Phase: Excitement! photo, photo, photo
2nd Phase: Dread about stepping on yet a million more sharp, small, large, loose rocks and over boulders.....BIG boulders.
3rd Phase: Auto pilot. You just do it, focused totally on finding the best place to place your foot.
Then of course ...... like the Garth Brooks song "Low Places"......there is always an “unofficial 4th Phase”. PA rocks ….you can kiss my ass!!😊.
All kidding aside, the hike thru PA has been quite an adventure with about anything you would expect...or not!....and we really did have fun and appreciated the challenges!! Thank you Pennsylvania!.....
