Journal Entry # 132

Sunday, August 7 - Day 136 - Mile 1632.6 - Stratton Pond Shelter

Today marks the midpoint of summer.

Today we hiked from Kid Gore Shelter in the rain over Stratton Mountain. This was the most rain I've had to walk in since early in the hike. Lots of mud and slick rocks & roots today.

Late in the day the sun finally came out as we reached the top of the mountain and headed for tonight's shelter. This is one of the nicer shelters with a pond for swimming.

They actually charge $5 to stay here so many hikers pass it by.  The $5 allows you to stay free at some future shelters.

Looking forward to our NERO tomorrow to get cleaned up.
