“My NOBO hike turned into a flip-flop due to an anaphylactic reaction to a bee. Then my leg got infected and it was a nightmare. I was off trail healing for 19 days.

However, I did muster the courage to get back on and I turned my hike into a flip-flop because I wanted to hike down to the place where I thought it was all over, which was the Hudson bridge!
Totally worth it.”
