Day 149

Beautiful - sunny and cool. No humidity.

Today's Hike:
Goddard Shelter to Stratton Pond Shelter - 13.0 miles

Today's was an absolutely beautiful day. The trail was fairly dry and my shoes are actually beginning to dry out. This morning we climbed to the top of Glastenbury Mountain, which is known as the Bermuda trangle of the Green Mountains. In the 60's and 70's there are a dozen documented cases of people who have mysteriously disappeared. Despite it's reputation, the observation tower had spectacular views of the Green Mountains.

Tonight, we are tenting at Stratton Pond Shelter with the Packadiva's, Billy Hoot, and Nutmeg. The pond is known for moose and loon sitings. I can hear the loons which sound cool and a little creepy, but no moose yet. We have to cross the pond in morning to head back north on the trail, so hopefully I'll see one then.
