June 6 Paw Paw WV to Meyersdale PA

About 68 miles

C&O towpath muddy. Great Allegheny Trail nice limestone. Both great in their own way.

At Cumberland, towpath ends and the Great Allegheny Passage begins -- with a 22 mile uphill at 1.75% grade. Not terrible, just unending. It was a great relief to reach the Eastern Continental Divide

Past Eastern Continental Divide so its mostly all downhill to Pittsburgh -- a gentle downhill, but downhill all the same.
