Feb 2, 2004 – Moraine State Park, PA
THE JOURNEY HAS BEGUN. Andrew left home in MA today. He flew into Pittsburgh, PA. Thank you Ron Rice, president of the local trail association, for the ride from the airport to Moraine State Park. Andrew hiked to McConnell’s Mill and spoke of the beautiful gorge, and the snow. Andrew quickly remembered why hiking is not all that romantic. The pack is heavy and he lost the trail for a while. He made it to Wampum, PA for the first night. About 18 miles of hiking.
