Bald Mountain Brook Lean To 14 miles
Total mileage 1029.7
I slept like a rock last night and I even fell back asleep after I got up to pee at 4:30 and slept until 5:40.
I moved to the Caratunk B & B hostel yesterday, that is where SOULFLOWER had a reservation. We had an awesome reunion. It was so good to be back together.
Breakfast wasn’t until 7 am so there was no rush for us to get ready this morning.
I think I may have figured out my anxiety. I don’t think it is anxiety at all. I think it is from eating a big meal first thing in the morning. I use to always eat first thing in the morning before going out for my workout, but once I started to take thyroid medication I had to wait a half hour before I could eat. I started to workout first then would get ready for work and wouldn’t eat until just before leaving the house. I have noticed that I wasn’t enjoying eating early in the morning, but I was doing it anyway since breakfast was provided by most hostels. I think the butterfly feeling in my stomach was just my stomach not being ready for so much food. I have heard some people say that they just can’t eat in the morning. This was never me, but maybe something has changed.
Today was gorgeous! It was a beautiful sunny day. We woke up to morning temperatures in the lower 50’s and it later warmed up to the low 80’s.
We had some really awesome clear views. Although the day was a little rough on my feet after being off of them for the last three days. The terrian was rough with rocks and lots of tree roots.
I am greatful for the beautiful day and to be hiking with SOULFLOWER again.
Note: Cell service is very spotty up here and the wifi at this hostel sucks so I haven’t been able to upload my pictures. I will do so when I have service.
