Another advantage of hiking in fall is the lack of ticks. I have been tortured by ticks on my trips in spring when I had to pull off dozens of ticks every day. Now there still is the occasional tick but they are not a big problem - thank God for that. Since the start of my trip the weather has been exceptionally good, almost too hot. I have been hiking in 30 plus Celsius weather! But now, alas fall is setting in. The forecast is for a lot of rain and the temperatures are dropping. Still, I am hoping for some sort of Indian summer.

And then tomorrow, when the forecast predicts rain for the whole day I will start hiking again.....
