2000 miles at last! It has been a long journey to here. I am laying under my tarp thinking of the last four and a half months and my travels. It is a cool evening with a slight breeze blowing off the lake and loons calling in the distance. Four of Raindog’s high school friends have joined us for three and a half days. It is fun to see the mindset difference of someone who is not hiking – though I didn’t laugh when they shared steak and corn on the cob with me. Maine is a magical state with peaks stretching above treeline to look down on brilliant sparkling lakes below. The end draws ever closer.
