I can’t lie to you. The White Mountains took a toll on me. I rolled into Gorham, NH yesterday tired, sore, and weighing 128 pounds. I’ve been resting, eating, and being thankful for the great weather I had.
I’ve eaten an obscene amount of food – including some great bolete mushrooms we harvested (and some blueberries).
Staying at this beautiful hostel
Reunited with my friend , the conductor, who I have not seen in 3 months
Saw some beautiful things on the way in to Gorham
Stumps serving as substrate for young trees
Mica deposits in many of the local granite
I summitted quite a few of these. The White Mountains have thrilled and humbled me.
Enjoying the rest – looking forward to Maine.
The Gnarly Whites pretty much did us in, too. Wise to take a rest day. Your beards are certainly impressive! Slow down and enjoy Maine – it’s a beautiful place. Sorry I will miss you up here – I’m homeward bound day after tomorrow.
Will do !!
Hope you are enjoying some well-deserved R & R. And may the restorative carb-fest begin!
A well deserved rest! You make it look easy!
Uncle Bill recommends “a nice pasta meal.”

Sounds like your trip through the Whites has been wonderful. Enjoy the rest day. We think you are awesome.
Thanks Pat and Marty – I’m back on the trail today feeling strong.
Eat, Papa, eat.
