Sunny Day

Friday June 9, 2017 

Mark Noepel Shelter 13.9 miles 

Total mileage 559

I left the hotel at 6 am and headed back to the trail. I ate breakfast before leaving and wasn’t hungry for a few hours. It was a cool morning in the upper 40’s. I bet within the first 90 minutes I had my jacket off. I was climbing and warmed up quickly. 

It was an 8 mile walk to the town of Cheshire and I was there at 10 am. I walked into town to use the library but it was closed. It had VERY  limited hours. I was hoping to handle some stuff with my retirement accounts and download some more audio books to my phone. Luckily Jim was able to handle the stuff for the retirement accounts for me. Thanks Babydoll. Thank you for all that you are doing for me. I love you and miss you. 

I enjoy listening to the audio books late in the afternoon when I am starting to get tired. It also takes my mind off tough climbs. 

The trail started out pretty easy then got noticeably harder as I got closer to Mount Graylock (the highest point in MA) which I will be going over tomorrow morning. There was a chance of rain for today, but never materialized. 😊 There is still a chance of showers for tomorrow, but after that it should warm sunny and rain free for a few days.  

There were still sections of trail that were muddy, but my shoes and socks stayed dry. And dry socks and shoes make me happy.

  1. Enjoy the view from Graylock, there is a war monument on top and you can see three or four states on a clear day. As always have fun and stay safe.
