Day 146 Mt Success Tentsite to Mahoosuc Notch Tentsite (8.3 miles) 1914.5 miles total
Another rough day. Don’t know if it’s because trail is still really difficult or something else. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
New Hampshire tortures you tight to the bitter end. Had to go up these rocks.
Finally made Maine. Final state!
Yeah, we’re going up there. Goose Eye Mtn West Peak.
Maine doesn’t exactly begin easily. They have rocks, too. Went down these rocks. Shortly after that walking on a narrow path ground gave way and tumbled down about 3′.
Didn’t get hurt but was laying on my back(pack) for a few minutes. Like a turtle flipped over on it’s shell.
Going up there, too. Goose Eye Mtn East Peak. Very boggy around here. Floating mud. Stepped on what a thought was a log. Sunk into muck over my ankle. Some places this crap is 12″ deep.
Stopped to tent just short of Mahoosuc Notch, according to guidebook, the most difficult or fun mile of the trail. Major boulder field. Takes people 2 hours to cross this mile. Doesn’t sound like fun to me!
