I hiked for 13 hours today and only made it 14.3 miles. The views were the best yet.
I started out with a big descent. Two miles into my hike I got some trail magic. In New Hampshire there are these huts on the trail. They call them huts, but they are kind of a backwoods resort type of thing that people pay pretty good money to stay at. Usually not AT through hikers unless they are doing a work for stay, which some do.
As I was going by I decided to stop in to see what it looked like. Breakfast was over and they had leftovers they were giving away. I had oatmeal, eggs and pancakes with real maple syrup. Oh yeah and coffee.
This was the view from Little Haystack Mountain.
This is a look down at what I had to climb up.
Then some amazing views from Mt Lincoln and Mt Lafayette. A
I wanted to make it to the next shelter but ran out of time. I’m stealth camping next to a pond. Honey Badger and Juke Box are here also. It’s been sprinkling off and on this evening.
I’m losing three toenails. I’ve never lost a toenail in my life so this is new to me.
