I made it to my shelter for the night – Mt. Algo Shelter at mile 1462.9 in the state of Connecticut!!
It was so sad to say goodby this morning to my wonderful friends from Ohio and my dearest wife. My eyes were filled with years as I hiked out of sight of my dear ones. No sooner had I hiked around the corner that I met Hob and Chickadee (a married couple about my age). Hob has hiked the AT twice before and was full of stories to tell as we walked. The next thing I knew it was 11:00 and Hob and his wife were headed into town to pick up a package. Our visit was such a nice buffer back to the trail.
Today’s hike brought a variety of terrain and views. I attached a picture of a beautiful river, a covered bridge, and a lovely view of the Connecticut countryside and a little border sign.
