What a Hike it was, 16 miles from Lake of the Clouds to Pinkum Notch via Washington, Jefferson,Pierce,Eisenhower,Adams and Madison. 13 hours finishing with a headlamp. And why did you do this to yourself Raymond? My planning part made reservations for these two huts (16 miles apart) while I was home one night sipping on a glass of wine and remembering 20 years ago when I was a trail runner. Then once I started in the wind and pea soup fog, my “never say die and you can do it given enough time parts” came along for support. But it became an important lesson to those parts that were hiding as I grew Older. I hope this proves to be one of the many lessons I keep when I return home.
