North Woodstock / Lincoln, NH

Day 120 – Saturday, July 7

389 Miles Remaining to Mt. Katahdin, Maine – and Lobsterfest

Thought I needed to add a few additional photos from my family and friend’s visit to Vermont. Below is my son, Bill, my wife, Mary “Mrs. Whitewater,” and our good friend, Yvette Westbrook enjoying a break on Baker Peak just outside of Danby, VT.

My last day of hiking in Vermont was really beautiful and I even got invited by some kind local folks for a shower and dinner. Thanks so much for the fine hospitality given by Alexandra, Martha, and their daughters in White River Junction, VT. What a great treat and break from the trail! The coffee and breakfast the next morning were a nice way to start the day as well. Many thanks again!

From Vermont, we crossed over into New Hampshire at Hanover and spent several hours walking around Dartmouth College and the town and visiting as many of the local restaurants as we could. As we moved on towards the White Mountains, Bill below, offered a great break from the trail on his porch as he gave thru hikers free ice cream and water before heading up the trail to the top of Smarts Mountain. On the 4th of July, and on my way up Smarts Mountain, I passed a really neat mile marker indicating that I had 412 miles left to Katahdin. It now seems to be very close and I have chosen Monday, August 6th to be my final day on the trail and journey’s end on Mt. Katahdin.

Yesterday, I made it to the top of Mt. Moosilauke, which is right at the beginning of the White Mountains.  The view was panoramic…360 degrees….just awesome!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! Moving on towards Maine! WHITEWATER

    Hi Whitewater,
    Do you have a rough guess on when you’ll be at the Webster Cliff Trail, Pinkham Notch Center or Gorham? I live pretty close to the trail and would like to meet you and help you out if I can. Are you resupplying in Gorham? I met 3 SOBO’s and 1 NOBO on the trail today. Excell, Lorax and Booty were SOBO and Roll Tide was NOBO. All nice guys. Happy trails and hope to see you soon 🙂

      Hi Krista,

      This is Mary, aka Mrs. Whitewater :). David “Whitewater” asked me to contact you since he has little internet acccess to respond. The guys plan to be at Pinkham Notch on Thursday, the 12th. They would love a ride to Gorham to resupply if that works for you. Please email me marylangford@bellsouth.net and I will give you cell #’s to contact him or Philly Ben. Thanks!
