    Cowboy Camping Barnard Gulf Rd 1724.5

    August 14, 2017 in the United States

    What a great start into the day with straight up for a quarter of a mile to Quimby Mountain. The night was pretty chilly again with around 12 degrees Celsius so it warmed us up quickly. Afterwards it was neat up and down with gentle slopes and even ground. The hikes here in Vermont have been fun so far but there aren't many miles left until we reach New Hampshire and the Whites.
    After lunch we came by a viewpoint at a cabin that was"0.1 mile off the trail. As I was a bit ahead of Julia I've decided to leave my pack at the junction and go check it out. And it was totally worth it, the cabin itself is perfectly maintained and pretty clean. It's open for hikers to stay there for the night and it even has a fireplace. But the best thing about it is is the lookout on top of the cabins roof. For a climb up a steep ladder it offers a wooden lookout platform with a bench and amazing views to three sides.
    On the way down another hiker came by and said that Julia moved on along the trail. We do that pretty often as I'm usually a bit faster than her but I need more time to get ready. So I just hiked on at a normal pace but after about three miles I started getting a bit confused because I still haven't caught up to her. As I checked the elevation profile (which was mostly downhill) I thought that I just spent more time at the cabin so she would be further ahead. After another hour I was almost sure that I had passed her so I went back for about half a mile and luckily found her again. She didn't take a turn at a junction where the trail was really bad marked and went downhill a wrong path for an hour.
    As it was already quite late we decided to go to a barn just 0.1 miles off the trail where hikers are welcome to stay.

    Happy Hill Shelter 1741.8

    August 15, 2017 in the United States

    Today's goal was to get as close as possible to Hanover. Therefore we headed out a bit earlier than the previous days. But the morning was quite tough with lots of ups and downs, both pretty steep. So we've only achieved 8 miles for lunch but we were still confident in reaching our goal.
    We've hiked by some trees that were equipped with lines to get maple syrup from them. Julia explained me a bit about it as she had already seen this up in Maine. It was really interesting seeing those trees being drained, apparently there has to be a large container down the hills where the raw juice is gathered. Maybe there will be a chance to explore it more detailed in Maine.
    As we came out of the woods into the town of West Hartford you could already see an AT sign from far away. As we came a bit closer we saw some hikers sitting on the porch so we joined them. And there was an amazing trail magic with sodas, coffee, cookies, muffins, brownies and fruits!! Those fruits were just what we needed at this point because the sun was burning down on us for quite a while. The trail angel even had WiFi for us, so we enjoyed being vortexed for about an hour.
    Then we finally found the motivation to make a move up to the next shelter with the promising name "Happy Hill Shelter". The hill wasn't so happy, mainly just a thousand feet of uphill that we saved our tomorrow selves. When we went to sleep in the tent we've heard the thunder rolling in the distance and hoped that it will spare us for the night in our leaking tent...
