I had a great night’s sleep on the mountain top. This morning the trail went over a couple mountains and then descended down to the Housatonic River. It was nice and flat for about 4 miles as it went along by the river. Of course, I took the opportunity to get cleaned up and play in the river.

I enjoyed hiking with Stretch and Willow and then having lunch with Dragon and them. They are part of a group of 5 that call themselves the Slug Club. Nothing sluggish about them as far as I could tell.

The afternoon had a lot of steep ups and downs. Hopefully my “trail legs” arrive soon. I’m camping 3 miles outside of Falls Village tonight. Looking forward breakfast at the Toymaker’s Place in the morning.
