Day 73 - Rain, Rain, Go Away!

I woke to the pitter patter of rainfall and a moat around my tent.  

I have been so spoiled by all the sunshine, I even considered staying in my tent all day to avoid the rain.

But I packed up and headed out, my skin IS waterproof, after all. 

Don me now my rain apparel, fa la la la la la la la la la!

The trail was quite damp, as well.

It cleared up after an hour or so, and I laid my soggy clothes out to dry in the sun.

Good as new!

The flowers seemed to appreciate their bath.

And the sun shined for a few mid day hours.

My newfound Swiss friends were all smiles, they had just started their hike.

It started to cloud back up and I set my tent up as the rain started to drizzle. 

On the Appalachian Trail, we used to say "no rain, no Maine," and I fully appreciate that it's just a part of the game.  

It sure does help me to appreciate the sun, though.
