I started the morning with a 3 mile hike into Falls Village to eat breakfast at the Toymaker’s Place. It was a great way to start the day.

It was forecast to rain most of the day and it pretty much did that. It gave me a chance to test out my hiking umbrella which worked great except on the windy ridge late in the day.

I hiked up Bear Mountain to the highest point in Connecticut with Stretch, Willow and Dragon. We also crossed into Massachusetts together. State #5 complete for me, State #10 for them. Yay! Massachusetts started off with a lot of rock hopping on a windy, wet, foggy, cold ridge. It was an adventure. I’m camping tonight with Slug Club. 🙂
