Day 139 No Pond Tentsite to Mitzpah Spring Hut (8.7 miles) 1850.8 miles total
That was a hard 8.7 miles.
Walked along Webster Cliffs. Great views but wind was 40mph+.
I usually don’t get passed by too many people in a day. Young day hikers were flying by me. Probably passed by 20!
There was a lot of rock climbing today. Had to toss stick up ahead couple times because needed both hands. Lots of stretches like below and then, of course, you have to go down similar. I’ve learned to swallow my pride and scoot down on my butt at some points.
That little dot in center of pic is the Hut. Finally got there at 2:30.
Ran into Alexander (Big Foot) who took pic of family on day 1. Haven’t seen him since Hot Springs, NC. Long time ago!
View of dining area and kitchen behind.
Great dinner: bean soup, bread, salad, pulled pork, baked broccoli, and blueberry bars for dessert. I pigged out.
Weather tomorrow is supposed to be good. Almost 6 miles to Mt Washington. Hope to be there by noon. Hoping to make 15 miles total.
