Expansive views, miles of rushing streams and clear rock bottomed mountain ponds:
Walking through a rare flat stretch of pine forest:
Scenic spots to catch our breath after hours of uphill climbing!
cozy shelters to cook some dinner and hit the sack. No matter how crowded the shelters might be, by about 9:00 pm not a soul was awake. Hiker's Midnight!
The Forest presented an exquisite art gallery
Crossing a state line from Vermont into Massachusetts via mountain trail was an unusual experience
I can hardly wait until next year when I hit the trail again and I so hope to see some of you out there.
Until then, I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer and sweet warm sunshine---happy trails to you!
