Tonight’s Location: Long Pond Stream Lean-to

Today started straight up a hill and never quit.  However, this were lots of up and downs.

There was some great views along the way.

From Third Mountsin Monument Cliff…

To Barren Ledges….

However, there was lots of pain to get to see those views.

Just check out this boulder scramble…

As you can see, I don’t seem to happy after climbing the Fourth Mtn…

Also, water was scarce.  Just check this out…

It too so long I hung my rainfly to dry while I waited….

I ran into this guy making a record attempt for fast thru hike unsupported.  I wish him well but forgot to ask his name.  Since his phone died, I let him send a message to his family for the pickup after summiting.


After arriving at the lean-to all of the NoBos recommended reservations for the Monson hostel…hmmmm, I think myWife made that suggestion to only earlier in the day when I finally got to speak with her.

So, I was lucky and had AT&T service here so I called on #TeamHikerBoy for support.  She secured myself and Laurence rooms for 2 nights (nero and zero).  Way to go…
