Trek one on day one of four day hike of VT.  Drove seven hours and then met shuttle driver at VT route 4 parking.  He then drove me to VT route 140.  I began hiking north.

Not many views along the trail but caught this one early on.  Hiked from Route 140 to Spring Lake Clearing after stopping for a snack at the first shelter (Minerva SH).  It took from 3 PM to 5 PM and then I hiked until about 6:45 to the clearing and stealth camped with the many wolf spiders I made quick friends as I set up my tent for the night.  Saw an amazing sunset over the valley.  Covered four miles today.  After hanging the bear bag I realized I had placed my ear plugs into it.  Oh well I will get a full ear of nature tonight.  Nature is so loud.  So many animals came by my tent to sniff.  It was a busy night for sure.  Hoping to sleep better tomorrow night.
