No cell phone service last night (August 14) so I am posting this morning. After a very cold start this morning, the hike turned sunny and enjoyable. I past the 1700 mile marker (no notation on the trail itself) and pitched my tent Stony Brook Shelter at 1707.
Not few many vistas today but I did hike around Kent Pond. Folks in Vermont call their lakes “ponds.” They are large and beautiful.
Congratulation to all DC & XC teachers and students – opening day of school is complete. It is the first opening day I have missed in 27 years. I trust it was a great day filled with excitement and inspiration.
