Calebs Peak view

Meeting good friends

The day started out very humid. I soon became soaked with sweat. I crossed CT 341, crossed Macedonia Brook and climbed Numeral Rock. Part of the trail here was road walking. Then I climbed up Calebs Peak and Skiff Mountain. I then climbed St. Johns Ledges which were steep stone steps that went down to the Housatonic River. The next section of trail was very long and runs along the Housatonic River and is pretty easy walking. It is long and flat. I stopped at Stewart Hollow Brook Shelter for rest and lunch. The afternoon was much drier and less humid and felt good. I then headed for CT 4 and the city of Cornwall Bridge. A good friend of mine, Hobo, and his wife, Anita, planned on meeting me there and spending a few days with me. Hobo and I hiked together on several long stretches of the trail last year. They took me to a campground, the Housatonic River State Park, and we camped out there. We went out to dinner in the nearby town then spent the evening around the campfire talking. It was a great visit.

Appalachian Trail - 2013-2017

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more: www.appalachiantrail.org
