One of the many fine views from Stratton Mt lookout

Reboot or 5 Star - AT - Aug 8, 2014 - Stratton Mountain
So I hiked up Stratton Mountain today and climbed up the huge fire lookout tower that is up there and took in some great views of the surrounding areas. Apparently this is the summit on which Benton MacKaye got his inspiration for the idea of creating the entire Appalachian Trail. I could see why too. The views from the top are amazing, although I kept wondering whether there was a fire tower up there back when he was inspired. We met a caretaker up there and we all joked that he must have climbed a tree to get a view and his inspiration.
I am still hiking with Too Long, Frankie and Racewalker for the most part. We busted out some good miles today and made it to the Spruce Peak shelter by a little after 5 or so and called it quits for the day. This is normally a little earlier than I like to stop for the day but the shelter area is really nice and I am with a good group of hikers so I made dinner and called it quits and relaxed a bit for a change.
A few minutes later Southbound, Skippy, and Sloth showed up and for once I had some extra time on my hands so I joined them for a game of cards. These three are what I refer to as the really fast and young hikers. They do about the same amount of miles as I do every day but they get into camp about two hours earlier because they can hike so fast. Sometimes they will hike a huge mileage day that I would never even think of or be able to do, but then they will take more time off to relax in camp or towns. Hence the good idea to carry cards for the down times. Of all the younger hikers out here on the trail that I have met, these three have to be some of my favorites. They are really friendly and outgoing and will talk to anyone out here. Sometimes the hikers their age will be shy or evasive and often even get cliquish, but these three are just out to have fun and they don't care who joins them along the way.
After the game of cards I finally got around to setting up my tent and crawling in for the night. I found a really good spot down away from the shelter that is almost perfectly level and smooth. I am thinking I will sleep good tonight!
