And thank goodness I finally did because the most beautiful part of the trail was coming up. This: Grindstone Creek sadly my photos do not capture how beautiful it was to walk alongside this creek in this valley.
The majority of the trail was forested. The last stretch to Mount Nemo was roadway — never pleasant but it does make up time. And then, there before us was Mount Nemo. I kept hearing about how hard it was climbing Mount Nemo so I anticipated that it was going to be really tough. Fair enough, it did come with a warning see top photo but by then we had a our legs and our pace and just kept going. And that made great way to end Day 2!

An organized end-to-end has someone called a Sweep. This person is meant to make sure that there are no lost hikers, that everyone has made it to the check points, etc. On the two previous end-to-ends we did, we never saw the Sweep.
But this day would be different. We stopped at our usual one hour marker to have a snack and as often happens, the slower hikers behind us pass us, which is fine because we seem to always catch up with them and leap frog pass them at some point.
