8/17, Day 110, Glencliff to NH 112 Kinsman Notch, 9.5
We left Glencliff Hostel, walking down the road to the trailhead. Hiking was challenging. We waded a stream with shoes on as soon as we stepped off the road, but didn’t mind because our shoes were still wet from yesterday’s rain.
We officially entered the White Mts with our ascent of Moosilauke Mtn at 4810′. This was the first time that the AT is above tree line and the alpine tundra is beautiful. Everyone else thought so too. There were 25 people at the top of the mountain.
We found trail magic, Arrow again, as we reached NH112. He met AWOL at the road and had set up his cooler and BBQ. We stayed and chatted with them until Arrow left taking AWOL to town. Some people have to work on Monday – we get to climb another mountain!
