Wanted to do the Appalachian Trail to Sunfish Pond. Ended up doing a loop over Mt Tammany and back to the car. It was fun.

I saw a couple deer. I saw the first at the start of the trail. It bolted quickly. Was up close to the other. I saw her at the top of the mountain. She didn't even seem to care that I was there. I was about 20 feet away. I took a few photos.

The NPS map I have for the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area sucks. I wasn't exactly sure where I was at any given point. I thankfully found my way back to my car. My New York-New Jersey Trail Conference maps should be here very soon. That will help. Learning to navigate will help too.

I was kind of surprised. When I reached the summit I found some guy sitting up there looking at the view. I didn't expect to see anyone since I started so early. Guess he started earlier.

I wore running shoes. I might go with sturdier boots next time. All those rocks really did a number on my ankles.  

Maybe next weekend I'll do the Sunfish Pond AT trail.
