New England National Scenic Trail Day 15

We both slept terrible last night it seems with what I think were acorns
dropping off the trees and making a large noise. It was weird, I'm not sure
what else would be dropping off trees all night. We were hiking by 6 am to
allow enough time to finish and get me to my Greyhound bus. It was really
humid for the steep climb but the top was worth the effort. I'm glad I
finished on Monadnock. The last few hundred feet of elevation are above
treeline and at a small 3,300', the mountain is way above everything else
nearby and had excellent views all around.

After a few pics we plummeted down the steep and rocky trail to Apple Pie's
car and she dropped me off in Keene, NH to catch a Greyhound to the start
of the North Country Trail. Assuming all goes well I'll take a day or 2 off
and be hiking west from Crown Point, NY in no time!

I enjoyed the NET much more than I would have expected. Sure, it's not epic
but it was pretty cool to walk a pretty rugged and remote feeling route
through a very urbanized Connecticut and Massachusetts. I'll post some
trail notes soon and then start a North Country Trail journal, quick
turnaround!
