Friday–October 29, 2021
Location–Schaghticoke Road (1463.1) to River Road (1475.8), then to home of Barbie and Ron Howland, Kent
Some Best Western Motels are new, great accommodations; others (like the one in Danbury/Bethel) not so much. Slept well, though, then got up and out of there.
A long drive back to River Road, but we’re hiking (Slim Jim & me) by eight.
A hard, steady climb first thing, up and over Schaghticoke Mountain. Spectacular views, the clouds below–like a huge sea.
Slow, difficult going today. The boulders are back in vengeance. Well over nine hours to hike a little less than thirteen miles. Back to the 1.5 mph average.
A very difficult and dangerous descent off Fuller Mountain and Calebs Peak to end the day.
May your trails be
crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous,
leading to the most amazing view.
Awesome, keep trekking. Happy Trails
Congratulations! Less than 100 to go! Thanks for taking us along!
