Shredded clouds, New Britain Reservoir, Wolcott, Connecticut. July 6, 2018, 7:27 PM. It's a bit breezy at ground level, but higher in the atmosphere winds are shredding these clouds apart.

40 years ago today: A quarter-mile side trail connects Pierce Pond Lean-to with Carrying Place Camps, a privately-run operation offering meals and lodging in rustic cabins to hunters, fishermen and hikers. Note: In northern New England terminology, A cabin is called a camp. Thus, the name means Carrying Place Cabins.

40 years ago today: The AT followed the Arnold Trail for almost two miles. It crossed a flat, very boggy area surrounding the inlet stream for Middle Carry Pond but stayed well to the north and out of sight of the pond itself.

Something I would never have done in the Houston area:

I've marked some I want to get out and try to . I even got some of the Xero Shoes Scrambler Mids on the way to facilitate it. ()

It's been decades since I did any , but I'd love to get into it here.

Northbound on the Etobicoke Creek Trail, just before the ascent to the airport. The frost has clearly hit the ivy vines, and fall is on it's way.

I took these today. Love these trails where the branches overhang. So peaceful.

40 years ago today: The Appalachian Trail climbed a very steep half-mile to the summit of the South Horn, one of a pair of open, rocky crags rising above the north shore of the pond (as you might guess, the other is called North Horn). Angry winds were shrieking past South Horns summit, and the haze was intensifying.

40 years ago today: After the P.O., I stopped at the Stratton Diner for what could very well be my final two cheeseburgers on the Appalachian Trail, some french fries, a coke, and some ice cream. My thumb was out as I walked the outskirts of the village. A few cars passed, but none stopped.

40 years ago today: I really wanted to hike the thirteen tough miles over four major summits today and make it to the Post Office in Stratton before it closed this evening. I made a special effort to reach Maine 27 early, in case I needed to wait a long time for a ride.

Stop and smell the mountain laurel, Sleeping Giant State Park, Hamden, Connecticut. June 1, 2023, 5:23 PM.

40 years ago today: The flat ground around the ponds was nevertheless evil walking: a mess of tangled tree roots and piles of jagged boulders thrusting up through the soggy, dark earth at all angles. Everything was slick and damp and treacherous I never could break into an actual stride.

40 years ago today: The grades moderated along the crest, and most of the final mile to the summit was a series of gradually-ascending terraces. Dark, soggy tundra was interspersed with ledges of naked rock dabbed with lichen. Masses of ground-hugging plants spread out like thick shag carpets while scrub spruce shivered in the gale above them.

40 years ago today: The Appalachian Trail continued northeastward, crossing a bunch of small knobs along a low ridge and skirting a few sphagnum bogs resembling lonely moors.

Wishing you a pleasant week.

40 years ago today: The thirteen miles of Appalachian Trail between Routes 17 and 4 wound through a landscape of bogs, lakes and low ridges. It was the easiest terrain the trail had traversed since Vermont, despite a few short climbs as steep and treacherous as any of the longer climbs in Maine.

Another day, another hike here in the ! Went up to 10,700 elevation today, but still a very modest distance/elevation-gain while acclimating to the altitude. Really enjoying the great views!

40 years ago today: I crossed Bemis Stream on the floor of its narrow valley on a wooden footbridge (an unusually effete touch for Maine) and commenced the final mile of ascent to Maine Highway 17. I came out of the woods and onto the road at 11:30.

40 years ago today: The trail over the long series of knobs which constituted the Bemis Range was slippery and hazardous from the rain, though not as bad as most of the trail I have walked in Maine.
