Welcome to another Wednesday photo of the day. In 2007 I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail. For those un-familiar with the trail, Pine Grove Furnace State Park is the home of the Half Gallon Challenge. Thru-hikers have the opportunity to eat a half-gallon of ice cream in one sitting. For those who are successful you win a wooden spoon. For other who are not successful, you win a bloated stomach and not so pleasant bowel movement. Hey I’m just saying, Not all my post are pretty but you do have to admit I tell it like it is. Just another wonderful experience on the trail.
I arrived in Pine Grove with several other hikes and enjoyed a nice visit. If I remember if correctly I ate about half of my serving. Thanks Rebel, Big Shanty, Tumbleweed, and Easy Strider for sharing this wonderful time. For more information about Pine Grove Furnace visit the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
Thanks for visiting
