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.
