I got another early start today, since I was just in my tent for the night. A couple miles into the day there was a couple of interesting rock formations. There were large boxy boulders, covered in moss and ferns. The trail actually went right in between two of them, and came out on top.
After that it was a very roundabout day. Based on the maps it seems like there has been a major re-route through the town of Salamanca. My guess is that the original trail went around to the west, but some of the land access was closed off, causing the re-route. In any case by the time I got back into any woods I was beat.
I ended up camping almost within sight of the giant casino, which sticks out like a sore thumb. It had a nice waterfall out front, complete with a couple of goldfish.
