Day #7 – Half a Slacker…

Today was another big one, even after doing a 20 miler yesterday.  The first half of our hike was without packs (slack-packing) thanks πŸ™ to Spiro, who drove them to the Green Mountain Deli after dropping Jag Happy and me off at Pine 🌲 Grove Furnace.  That 8 miles was a breeze!

After donning our packs, it got tougher.  The trail went up onto a ridge and into boulder land.  Yikes!

We’re hunkered down for the night at the shelter out of the rain β˜”οΈ.
