Day 95 Palmerton PA

6/23/13
Miles hiked 8
Total miles 1253.6

We took a short day in Palmerton. We are staying at the town jail house hostel. We are trying to rest for a big climb and a very hot day without cover because we are hiking thru a super fund site deforestation due to zinc smelting in the area for almost 100 years, ending in 1980. Kaboose

Today was fun. We hiked 8 miles. Today was hot. I think it is in the uundreds at one point. To trail was good it was mostly downhill. The town is great it is so beautiful. Sassafras
