In our last installment, we left Elizabeth and Darcy hiking out of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and thus leaving behind amenities like campgrounds and privies. The Appalachian Trail in eastern Pennsylvania follows long, flat, rocky ridges broken by climbs in and out of gaps.

This section of trail is also notoriously rocky. Hikers say this is where boots come to die.
But the views are worth it:
Next on the trail: Darcy and Elizabeth explore the Pinnacle and Hawk Mountain with Marianne Dashwood.
