We did a 10.5 mile hike today. The weather was finally warmer so it was quite pleasant as the day went on even though the beginning was pretty chilly.
We stared at Sand Lake. We took a spur to the North Country Trail, so 9 miles of the hike was on the NCT.
This is a piece of trail I haven't seen before because it's been rerouted since I hiked it. There is now a nice stretch along the Boardman River.
Leftovers from winter. I was surprised that porcupines or something haven't taken the antlers.
Even though nothing is green yet, I liked this valley space.
At least the sun came out enough that the hepatica opened.
In the evening, I did a very short recognition of those who have earned Long Distance Hiker patches on the NCT this year.
And then the keynote speaker was Mirna Valerio, who gave a motivational speech about breaking stereotypes and running.
One more hike tomorrow. Must to to sleep now.
