Once again, it’s nice to be back to just “normal” hiking terrain. The only thing objectionable are some of the tree roots layered on top of each other like giant pythons…makes for difficult footing.
I got in at 7:30pm this evening but I couldn’t get my typical early start because I had to wait for the ferry at 9am. The only problem with my late arrivals is the camping spots are sometimes limited and I’m running into a lot of South-bounders and Summer Camps who tend to set up early. Tonight I wound up staying in the shelter since there weren’t any suitable tent spots left.
Tomorrow I will stay in my last trail town, Monson. Then it will be 5 days to Baxter State Park and a summit attempt of Mt. Katahdin the following AM. This will officially be the “homestretch”.
