Day 106 – A Walk in the Woods

I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees. –Henry David Thoreau

Since we walked more than we thought  yesterday, this was easy day. Our goal was 11 miles to get to Jo Mary Road and meet Hugh.

We meandered!

Truthfully we took so many breaks we ran out of things to talk about. We started out in about three minutes into our hike we came upon some rocks were the sun was shining. It was a cold morning and we decided our first break was going to be on those rocks after three minutes of hiking.

Then of course when you come up on a beach in Maine you have to do a little tanning. It was an incredibly enjoyable day because we were so relaxed about the time schedule. We knew Hugh because of his infusion was not going to be there before 2 o’clock so we had all the time in the world.

I wanted to show you what a blue blaze actually look like. These blazes show the way to shelters, privies, vistas, campsites and water.

Of course it would not be Maine unless there was a waterfall to see. This is a gorgeous state and the volunteers have outdone themselves. I’ve enjoyed every minute of Maine.

Sometimes, not always, the trail is perfect here is a picture of a perfect trail.

  1. Can’t believe you are two days away from Katahdin!!! Your day looks fun and relaxing. Can’t wait to see your picture on Friday.
