Gretel's Difficult Decision
A difficult decision was made today.Gretel will be leaving the trail for a little while to take care of some things that she cannot do while walking in the woods.Leaving Hansel, her brother and trusty trail companion was hard for both of them, but Gretel is hoping to return as soon as she is able.For a little while, Hansel will have to figure out how to cook his own evening meals.Even though Gretel is taking this break now, she has every intention of completing the Trail in its entirety. She will join up with Hansel when she is able to hike again.After finishing through Maine, she will go back to the parts of the Trail she did not yet hike.Thru-hiking the AT is a dream Gretel has been holding onto for several years now.She is over halfway through, she is a strong hiker, a brilliant trail chef, and one day soon, she will accomplish this dream.For now, we’ll just say good luck to Hansel.We’ll miss you Gretel and can’t wait to see you back on the Trail.
