Day #15 (43 total) – Massachusetts

It’s been an eventful day and a half since my last post.  I crossed into Massachusetts this afternoon coming into North Adams / Williamstown.  I have now hiked through Vermont on the A.T.  Yeah!

  

I ended up hiking with “Wildcat” yesterday.  It turns out he’s the Trail Chaplain embedded on the A.T. by the Methodist Church.  We had a ton in common.  He’s also the second Triple Crowner that I’ve met.

 
We passed a large beaver bog that was amazing,

  
and met “Dixie” – from Alabama.  She’s hiked all the way from Georgia.

  
Best of all, Wildcat helped me dress the one blister I’ve gotten.

I’m in Williamstown tonight at a motel.  It’s nice to be dry and clean.  🚿  My brother Nat is visiting from Boston tomorrow.  I’ll be back on the trail at  Mount Greylock in 2 days for the final 50 miles of my journey.
