Howdy folks & sorry for being MIA recently. I have a bit of a cold and spent the night last night in Manchester Center at a quaint B&B to rest up. The trail has definitely taken a toll on me lately and I'm feeling lower than I have on this whole trip. The honeymoon phase is way long gone and I find myself missing the luxuries & conveniences of "real life" more frequently. On the plus side, the New England forest has been incredibly beautiful and it's so nice to be climbing big mountains again and then be rewarded with such astounding views. The temperature has been cooler in the evenings, which is a nice change from the super hot days and really warm nights we had only weeks ago. We are excited and nervous for the infamous White Mountains just ahead in New Hampshire. I feel like a lot of adrenaline will kick in when we get there, but it's been tough in the meantime, keep trudging through. Any encouraging words from you gentle readers would be much appreciated :)
I'm going to try to write recaps on the rest of New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont here shortly, so stay tuned!
Overall though, I still feel like this has been an incredible adventure and the best thing I've ever done for myself.
