During the early morning hours of the day, around 4 a.m. some general thunderstorms kicked up and brought rain and wind to camp. A few lightening strikes were pretty close, but the storms moved out quickly.
I packed up all my gear dry, with only a wet tent. That is as good as it gets after rain.
Hiked about 9.5 miles into Manchester Center, Vermont. Of course the rocks and tree roots were slick. There were sections of the trail that were muddy of course, but not on an epic scale by any measure.
It was dark and foggy while hiking today. Almost could have used my headlamp. Saw some flowers and a giant white mushroom, that looks like a mouth.
As the hike neared its end for the day, came across some Trail Magic of cold Gatoraide.
Tomorrow, I will have a zero in town. Body needs some rest for sure. Picked up a few local brews to try out. Will post about that tomorrow. The weather should be more friendly now the cool front has moved through.
Have a great weekend everyone!
