Dogwood trail plus in Rockwood Range with 30+ pounds. Legs and body felt good. After yesterday's workout, bit of a back-to-back. Tough with humid 90 degrees and swarming gnats. "I need a breeze!" No ticks; few if any chiggers. After two weeks, great to come back to some more chantrelles.
Forest Park goals: minimal payment; shade; hills - done. Felt odd to "just" walk again. 2.5 weeks before Isle Royale. Legs felt good; only concern is mild swelling of left knee - especially due to downhill.
