Morgan Stewart Shelter, NY 18  Miles Hiked Today 1416 of 2167 Miles Hiked Total

Today's hike was pretty uneventful and easy. The nine hours of sleep probably helped with the latter. In the middle of the night, though, I was awakened by a deer running into camp and coming to a screeching halt. It seems I had camped in his runway. I saw another deer near camp this morning and three more later. No snakes today, but saw three yesterday. While hiking, I calculated mileage and plan to summit September 7th. We'll see.
