Third day of hiking in the Adirondacks began at 9:00 thru 4:00. We traveled 9.1 miles.
The walking was much more of a path and it was a pleasure to be walking in dry socks.
We saw frogs in a pond that had their babies backpacking on top of them…it was so
cute and we both had not seen this before. We hiked with fairly light packs today and
foundor about half of the day and had to wear head nets. It made
hiking a little hotter but it saved us from a lot of bugs. We found a large hole along
the path and I saw some animal move in the hole but we could not tell what it was.
We stopped at a lean to for lunch and h it rather buggy fad a nice rest and filtered more water.
It was good to get to the car and sit down out of the bugs. I liked the equipment and
the clothing that I packed I was comfortable in. I would have liked to have had another
pair of socks and a change of clothes.
