Day 171 (Sep. 8th) – 18.8 miles to Moxie Bald Mountain Lean-to. Hard day, two mountains, but great weather (rain held off and it was cool but not too cold). We saw a moose today in the woods! It was through a lot of trees, so we could really only see it’s shape – it had antlers and was huge.
Day 172 (Sep. 9th) – 17.9 miles to Monson, staying at Shaw’s. Nice day today and pretty good terrain (well except for all those nasty roots, rocks, and water crossings!). We had to ford our first two rivers today! Tomorrow we enter the 100 mile wilderness and will be out of pocket (no cell coverage) till we reach Katahdin! Wish us luck!
