Last Day in the Woods

Well the huts treat you very very well because they made pancakes that day and they serve REAL MAPLE SYRUP. When we went back to the kitchen to eat our food I was hoping that would be some pancakes left from all of the people who ate before us. Well there just happened to be a complete MOUNTAIN OF PANCAKES ON A PLATTER WITH A LARGE MASON JAR FULL OF SYRUP! I had eight six inch pancakes and wasn't planning on there being any syrup left over. The SOBO hiker gladly had the same mentality. It was the best breakfast I had ever had in months.

I headed up to Madison which from the night before looked incredibly steep, a lot steeper than I remembered it to be the last time that I climbed it. I wasn't up there that long before I continued down quite liesurely to where I was going to meet my mother, on a small rock opening called Low's Bald Spot. I stopped and talked to a few of the people on the way down, because I really didn't feel the need to rush. When I met with my mother my older brother was also there to congratulate me. We exchanged hugs then we headed down to Pinkham Notch and headed to North Conway, where one of my favorite pizza places was. We had some incredible pizza then picked up some rich chocolate frappes that were like no other. I really don't remember much else that happened that day, just how damn good town food tastes after a couple hundred miles on the meter.

Appalachian Trail 2016 - Section 1

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
