Comments
Comments: Fantastic day to complete Piper’s 48 four thousand footers. The weather was bright blue skies some wind perfect visability.
We were blessed to be accompanied by Silky (who completed a NOBO of the AT a few years ago) and Rachel who we met the day before at The Perch where they were also camping.
Also met Hiking with Braids who was thru hiking the AT. I had seen some of her YouTube videos. She had started in Georgia going North before Covid and made the decision to come off trail. She got back on when she felt it was safe but jumped up north to Mount Katahdin at some point as she was running out of time and now is heading south.
The hiking community is wonderful and to me it seems people not in this community don’t understand what it means to be out on the trail.
