Thursday, August 27th (day 15)
Today was a great hike! We actually hiked the section of the Long Trail today with the best 360° views. Unfortunately, we were hiking in a frigid cloud this morning, and didn't get the best views, but there was some good ones at the end of the day.

We passed by 4 different ski lifts today. We got another great rest break in another ski lift control room.

Today's hike was very rugged, and very fun, especially without the extra weight of a full pack (we only brought essentials, and left other gear in the hotel).

This picture in the cave used to be the actual route. Now it is an optional route to take to a shelter. The other option was climbing around the rock rather than through and up this small cave. In all, it was an 11.6 mile day, but it took us almost 8 hours to complete because of the difficulty. We got to see a mother bird feeding her babies who were out of the best and we assumed, learning to fly.

We were very happy to be back at the Hyde Away Inn for a shower, laundry service, and super good food in their restaurant. What more could you ask for?

Tomorrow, it is back to sleeping in the woods.
