Lots of boardwalks, lots of mud, lots of mosquitoes. Lots of Deet. Not a lot of rocks, though, so that made my feet happy.
We came through a park on our descent from Mt Everett to trail magic, which is always nice.
Then we went by a gorgeous, totally swimmable pond. Figures, since it was drizzly. Where were these ponds when we really needed them?
A bit more steep terrain, and then out onto the road to Great Barrington. We got a text from Road Runner that he was zeroing in GB, we had caught up! Plus a text from Pachouli that she had pulled a couple zeroes, getting treatment for an infected chafing wound. Ouch!
We got a hotel room, showered, and walked to tend laundromat, which was conveniently located next to the grocery store for resupply. Back at the hotel, we dried out our tents and other wet gear, and then headed out with RR to The Gypsie Joynt for dinner.
What a cool place! It was decorated like a 60's hippy hangout and had a great, diverse menu. I funded up going veggie with veggie chili and veggie hash plate. The lentil patty was to die for! I gotta find a recipe for that after I get back.
It was open mike night there, so we had some good entertainment while we ate.
