Monday–November 1, 2021
Location–West Cornwall Road (1486.1) to Dugway Road (1496.1), then to home of Barbie and Dan Howland, South Kent
Another much needed night of rest; I slept well. And another nourishing breakfast prepared by Barbie & Barry.
No time is wasted getting Slim Jim and me loaded and back on trail. It’s definitely fall here in Connecticut; a chill in the air. But we’re able to warm up quickly, as we begin climbing right away. More rocks and boulders. But as the day progresses, the trail becomes increasing more friendly to my tired feet. A bit of road walking, then more trail past the roaring falls of the Housatonic.
Evening, another memorable time, complete with a scrumptious supper prepared by Barbie and Dan.
Oh, and I get to take a toboggan ride!
Of all the seasons, autumn offers the most to man
and requires the least of him.
