The climb out of Palmerton was one of the most fun ascents ever. I left the trail and climbed hand over fist to the ridge line to grab this photo. I sat up there for a good half hour, taking in the beautiful morning sky, and the valley below.
Delaware Water Gap is the last town in PA along the Appalachian Trail. It signals the “end” of the dreaded Pennsylvania rocks, of which I’ve had my fill.
I stayed at the Church at the Mountain’s hostel.
