Rained last night and this morning.  I slept in this morning in my tent until the rain let up enough to make a run  for it.  Spent the morning getting really soaked from all the wet branches.  At about 11:00 am the sun came out and we had a beautiful day.  Had lunch at Battell Shelter and got great pleasure out of changing into dry socks.  The highlight of the day was climbing Mount Abraham and enjoying the fantastic 360° views.  This is my favorite spot on the trail so far.  Enjoyed walking along the ridge all afternoon.  I got a little lost at the Sugarbush Ski Area missing a turn of the LT as it left a ski trail and having to backtrack up a very steep hill.

Stark's Nest at Mad River Glenn Ski Area

I arrived at the Stark’s Nest on Mad River Glenn Ski area just before 8:00 pm.  The Stark’s Nest  is a ski-warming hut that was recently rebuilt. Stoney and another couple are here as well.  Great views, a fabulous sunset and a fireworks show that looks to be coming from Derby.  Awesome day!

Hiked 13.8 miles today.
