8/14, Day 107, Hanover to Goose Pond Road, 14.2 miles
We got a late start out of Hanover. We took the local bus back to town, checked email, and bought groceries before leaving. We ate our sandwiches before starting up the hill. Less weight to carry and more calories.
The weather was nice – sunny but not too hot. The trail is amazingly dry. Just a few muddy places.
Vermont and New Hampshire don’t seem to have blueberries. The raspberries are finished and blackberries are not ripe. We found a purple mushroom! Now we are looking for a blue one and we will have a full rainbow of mushrooms. The variety and numbers of mushrooms is amazing.
We found a great flat place after 7 pm and stuck up the tent. When we heard cars we realized that we were close to Goose Pond Road. We had a nice evening.
