Appalachian Trail: Day #26
Painter Branch Campsite –> Max Patch Summit: 11.2 miles
Total AT miles: 253.9
Sure, we could hike more miles. Many people do. But miles mean rushing and rushing means missing special opportunities like a sunset and sunrise camped atop Max Patch. I’m so thankful for my trail family who enjoys a slower pace soaking in these special moments.
Max Patch. We arrived here earlier in the day and decided to camp. The weather was perfect and the view to spectacular to pass up.
