From the lake to the Pond

We left Anton's on the Lake this morning with a quick pit stop at Bellvale Creamery en route to the trail. In their register we saw our friends Ringleader's and Monkey's entries from last summer. Hiking today was a bit rough, fun climbing like in the Whites, but tiring after all of the flatter sections of recent. We saw a pond in our book and thought we would check it out as a potential camp site since we wouldn't make it to our original destination at our pace. What a nice surprise! I went for a dip and we cooked dinner on the rocks. Can't wait to see the sun rise over the pond in the morning! Tomorrow is day 100, we cross the Hudson River, hit 1,400 miles, hike through the Bear Mt Zoo, will have views of NYC, and will hike the lowest point on the AT...stay tuned!

  1. I just started following you guys this last week. I read everything you have posted and can't wait for more. It seems like you are having a blast! I have always wanted to do what you are doing right now. Hopefully one day I will, but for now....I live through you both! Also I look forward to your next post AND your next mail drop. Sending a little mail magic would make my day.

    Have a great day.
