Massachusetts and Vermont in 2006

Return to the Trip Overview

Returning at a trot:
My return bushwhack, and then travel on the AT/LT (taken at a trot!), was uneventful. I was still smarting from my GPS-only experiment on the outward bound portion of the trip, so on my return I navigated more sensibly using my GPS and compass in tandem.

Here, at this last stream crossing, I cleaned the mud from my boots, clothes, and gear so my cleanup work in my hotel would be a little less heinous. I stayed streamside until dusk, enjoying the sounds of sunset in Vermont.

This was a bracing but refreshing end to a marvelous trip; a journey to a wonderful pond I fully expect to revisit.
