Week 8

    Day 55 (NOBO)

    18.6 miles

    Spaulding Mountain Lean-to (1987.5) to Horn's Pond Lean-to (2006.1).

    982.7 miles total.

It was raining when I woke up this morning and it rained all day. I didn’t take very many pictures because I didn’t want to get my camera wet. Also, I got cold if I stopped too long. Perfect hypothermia weather……but I stayed dry and warm.

It would have been so easy to go into town after 9 miles. However, I needed to keep hiking. Too many short days lately. When I arrived at the shelter, I was happy to see The Hiking Vikings were there. Jean from Canada was also there. The four of us chatted and laughed until time for bed. This is only the 3rd time I’ve slept in a shelter. I was able to hang up my tent in the shelter and dry it out.
