Today we were hiking eight miles to USF10 and then move our car so that we could hike another mile to Big Branch Tenting. At Stratton Mountain we had a great view from the fire tower. We met a person hiking behind us that had just taken a video of two moose on the trail and was only fifteen minutes behind us. He was very excited about seeing them and it made his day. It was a long day of hiking 8:50 to 3:00 to the car and then 5:00 to 5:50 to the spot we were tenting. The area at Big Branch was very pretty and we ate our dinner along the beach of the river.
