Journal Entry # 166

Saturday, September 10 - Day 170 - Mile 1947.9 - Route 17 - Oquossic, ME

The perfect hiking day!

Nick drove us to the trailhead this morning on a picture postcard day and we were hiking by 7:30.  This is our  highest mileage day so far for Maine.   It took us until 5:00 PM to hike 13+ miles.  We all remembered being able to do 13 miles before lunch...but not in Maine.

Views today were exceptional.  The weather is supposed to hold until at least mid week

Once again Janel & Nick had a wonderful dinner waiting for us when we got home.  We had actually been dreaming of this since lunch time.  A major motivator to finish our hike on time.

We had one ford today, that was pretty easy, plus the usual climbs and downs.  The last up was the most challenging. Straight up to route 17.

We all had a wonderful day.

I can't keep my eyes open so I'll sign off.
