It was our fourth day away from home and our first full day of walking. We climbed down from our hotel in the old city, walked through the commercial district, and climbed back up the other side. After the first mile or so, the trail leveled to a gradual rise toward our destination about 12 miles away. It was a bit of a challenge to get our legs in gear, even with all our neighborhood and Millhopper training. It didn't rain until the last few miles.
