Very heavy rain overnight. Didn't think we had a prayer of hiking over Mt. Moosilauke today but low & behold the day cleared up and off we went.
Miss Janet drove us to the trailhead but first stopped so we could all have a good breakfast to power us up the Mountain.
The climb up the north face of Mt. Moosilauke was the biggest challenge so far. The "trail" was all vertical rock with a waterfall coming down from all the rain. It took us 7 hours today to do 9.5 miles. When we reached the top there was a 60 mile an hour wind, 53 degrees and dense fog. It began to clear a bit before we made our decent and we had some spectacular views. It was good to get off the top and warm up.
Buffalo Bobby received a package today from a friend, Peter Block, who sent the L.E.G. a huge supply of Goos, coffee, etc., that will get the three of us to Katahdin. What a wonderful surprise. Thanks Peter!
With just about a month to go we continue to get support from every quarter.
Miss Janet is cooking us all dinner tonight at the hostel. It's a beautiful night so it should be lots of fun to be outside.
Tomorrow we'll be back to hiking with our full packs again, so another adjustment.
