Yesterday was all about water management. Seems like all the “reliable” water sources were dry. Much of Massachusetts seems the same way. Many of the trail areas must usually be seem ply because there are wooden platforms or rails, but there is no water under them

I ran into two trail magic stations with cold water, so somebody knows what the hikers need – that was so kind!!

The Housatonic flows here in Massachusetts as well

Couldn’t quite remember what Shay’s rebellion was:

A tiny house manufacturer right off the AT in the Berkshire mountains

They have stone fences in Massachusetts, as well:

And the Bears here seem really docile:

Ready for a little rain,

    I can’t edit to add a comment, so here I am again. This site gives a weekly report on drought conditions. Some areas of New England are experiencing moderate drought this week: http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Home/RegionalDroughtMonitor.aspx?northeast

    Water insecurity is the absolute worst. Rain is in the forecast for today, which I’m sure is a mixed blessing on the trail. I hope your journey north is less drought-ridden. Southern New England has been hit hard.
