It was a long day, finishing in the village of Horseheads – seriously, that’s the name of the town. It’s got to be where the Kiama Horseheads come from.

It was even colder this morning, and I put on my gloves for the first time in months. Much of the morning was near Lake Seneca, as I made my way toward Watkins Glen. This region reminded me a lot of Launceston, complete with wineries and the lake doubling as the Tamar River.

After lunch I found an old rail trail, and ran along it for several miles. The leaves were so thick, it was impossible to see the trail at times. It was a gradual climb after that. finishing at the high point of the day, both literally and figuratively – how could it be otherwise in a town called Horseheads?

PS I have added in 950 metres to the Garmin data, to make up for what was missed when I forgot to restart the device after a stop.
