On top of South Twin Peak

Split & Two step - AT - Jul 20, 2012 - Day 32 - Eggs And More Eggs, Trail Mile 362.8
We woke this morning with the anticipation of a good breakfast- eggs! Not the powdered barely edible brand, but dehydrated scrambled eggs. We seldom have eggs since although they are light, they are bulky. Preparing the eggs was somewhat time consuming, since Ethan Pond campsite had an area in which all cooking was required to be completed and the meals eaten (due to bear activity in the area), and it was some distance from our tent. After boiling water, rehydrating the eggs, thoroughly enjoying the eggs with bacon bits, and hiking back to the tent, we were about 30 minutes behind our normal morning pace, but in a contented mood. Our mood continued to improve as we found the first 5 miles of our morning hike was on a nearly flat trail with few boulders or roots. Hiking at a breathtaking speed that exceeded 2 miles an hour ;-) we made it to Zealand Falls Hut at about 9am, and went in to fill our water bottles from their well water that was on tap. We were welcomed by the staff who wanted to know if we would like to eat some of their leftover breakfast, since they have to pack out leftovers. "Sure" we responded, "what do you have?" Scrambled eggs. We ate another heaping bowl apiece, this time with peppers and broccoli, laughing at our latest taste of trail magic. After that the day got more challenging. Our two biggest peaks were Mt. Guyot (4597 ft), where we enjoyed lunch under a sky full of cumulus and cirrus clouds all moving in different directions, and then down and back up to South Twin Peak (4902 ft). The day was stunningly clear with over 100 miles of visibility, and the 360 degree view of the mountainous wilderness from the top of this second peak was the most memorable of the trip to date. The remaining 5.5 miles of our 14.5 mile day started with a steep 1100 ft descent in 0.8 miles, but again while difficult, it was not as treacherous as we have become accustomed to being subjected. The rest of the hike was full of PUDs (pointless ups and downs) with the exception of a 500ft vertical rock scramble into camp - the most difficult of the day just as we thought we were home free. We are in the lap of luxury staying on a tent platform surrounded by other SOBOs - Driver and his wife Pitstop from Mississippi, and Johannes from Germany. Emmett is also here, section hiking by driving a car to one end of a days-length hike, dropping off a motorcycle, driving back to the other end of the trail, and then slack packing from one vehicle to the next. He has done the entire trail between Georgia and NH this way in the last 4 years. From the White Mountains on the AT,
