I got a very early start while it was dark and I crossed the Bigelow Mountains in clouds and rain. A few thunderstorms popped up later in the day, which was my reason for doing what I could to avoid lightening since a fair amount of the trail is fully exposed up there. My phone and hands were pretty wet, so not a lot of pictures today. Safe but no views. The skies cleared up later in the late afternoon/early evening.
I hiked on more as I had plenty of day light. I camped at a stealth site past West Carry Pond. It was a long day. The feet were sore. I went for a late night swim in a lake to cool off and play. It was great. Then right in the tent.
It felt like a great day for moose sightings. Saw fresh evidence, but no live specimans. There were loons out during the evening.
I am finding cell phone reception to be almost zero on the trail in Maine, except sometimes there is some on a peak.
