Day 155 US 201 to Bald Mtn Stream (21.1 miles) 2059.9 miles total
Today was about getting myself as close to Monson as I could. 15 miles away so I’m pleased.
The number of lakes and ponds in ME is amazing. Some are very large. There also are few cabins or residences on most that I’ve been near…probably because it would be a long walk to get there.
Crossed 2 peaks today, Pleasant Pond Mtn (2470′) and Moxie Bald Mtn (2829′). May not sound very tall, but when you start at 1000′ it’s still some work.
Wind was howling most of day. Blew my hat off on Moxie Bald (below). Luckily it got caught in some brush or would have been sayonara to hat. Trail was not well marked here. If I didn’t have app on phone would have taken me some time to figure it out.
There is allegedly a system to get supplies half way through the 100 Mile Wilderness. Buy in Monson and someone, somehow, leaves a bucket along trail for you. Curious as to how this works. Big difference (about 6 lbs) between carrying 3 days of food vs 6 days.
