My hike started out this morning (Aug 9) with a beautiful pond (still looking for the moose), then I climbed the highest mountain in Southern Vermont (Stratton Mt) and took a trip up the fire tower on top, then hiked down to Stratton Pond for another unsuccessful moose hunt. I have ended the day on Prospect Rock (mile 1642.3) for a little over 20 mile trek. I hope to get a photo of the sunset from the rock – it should be great. If it is I will post a shot tomorrow. Hopefully the photos below will let you see some of the beauty of this state.
