Mark Nobel Shelter….16.5 mi.

Posted by on May 20, 2017


I was happy to be in a shelter last night….it poured rain with lots of lighting… I expected the only camper to come inside but she did not. My plan was to hike the 2.5 mi into Dalton Ma. for breakfast which I did…I ordered 2 small pancakes and 2 eggs with diced ham…….. The pic shows what they brought me….LOL. I ate half of it…. The morning pic is what I see when I look out of the shelter at 5:45 am. The pic of my bent hiking pike was the result of to much breakfast food… The last pic if of my evening lodging for tonight….should be a chilly night. I’m sharing tonight with a couple from eastern mass who are out for two weeks…very nice. And a young man who thru hiked last year and has given me good info for hiking the Whites.

    The photo of your hiking pole brings back memories. I went thru three sets. Absolute necessity! Thanks for keeping us up to date. Love the blog.

    Wow, I need to try that restaurant. I hope they have donuts too. What do you mean only ate half? Yo might oughta grab them calories when you can. Sorry bout the pole, glad it took the bending instead of you. Have fun and Good bless.

    That’s what they recommended aluminum bends and carbon brakes….how ever I love my carbon poles.
