Hmmm... according to @Guthook, we have gained a LOT of altitude... did we take a wrong turn somewhere :-)
Whatever trail malaise had affected me yesterday (heat, leg pain, emotional memories) it did not affect today. Today’s hiking was challenging but fun. The weather was beautiful, the companions great, the terrain gorgeous, what more could you ask for? My knees were ok because we were going uphill all day.
Camping tonight at Copper Lodge on Killington peak. Listening to the wind whip through the evergreens, all snug in my sleeping bag. Looking forward to another 11 hours of rest before another day of hiking. And town day tomorrow! Maybe we’ll score a hot tub again.
Watching the sunset into western Vermont and the Adirondacks. The sunset tonight was spectacular and was the post-dinner show. This is when I miss lugging my Sony camera. I simply can’t capture the beauty with my phone. But I watched it and experienced it, so grateful to be on top of this mountain tonight.
While my parents dry out their gear from last nights rain @toesalad pitches our home for the night.
