Day 157 Almost There

I woke up this morning feeling contented and relaxed. I got more excited as the day crept onward. Had breakfast at the campstore and took a liesure pace to Katahdin Spring Campground (KSC). It was great trail - easy and followed strams most of the way. Took a stop at Big Niagra Falls and got some great pics.

At KSC, I met Magic Man and Animal who had just summitted. Said it was cold, and no views. Their pics showed a lot of clouds. Zen, Devo, and Apple Juice came down the mountain, followed by Darwin, and Robo Baggins. I basically hung out at KSC w/the hikers. Zen, Devo, and Apple Juice went to hitch out while the brothers waited for Mimi and her dad to come down the mountain.

Mimi and the boys came over to the Birches where Creepy, Noboody, and I were having dinner. Good byes were said and the night moved on. Joker came by w/her Dad. She hiked last year and said she has food down at KSC to share.

The Birches site is a very peaceful place. It is great to end the hike. The place is reserved for long distance hikers.

I'm glad I had an easy day to here and I'm looking forward to the finish. Hopefuly I can sleep tonight. Only 5.2 miles up and 5.2 miles down to go!

Weather: Beautiful overnight, great morning,
Sleeping: Shelter
