Washington Bound

Well there was some rain last night and my tent positioning was such that I spent a nice amount of time digging ditches to divert the water runoff around my tent however I will still have a lot of drying out to do today.

After about 7 miles yesterday I paused at Zealand Falls Hut to see about the rest of the days weather and the walk ahead. The sky looked ominous but not terrible and today was supposed to be much better weatherwise and the stretch between Zealand and Crawford Notch was some of the flattest I have seen since PA so I decided to push on.

I am just over 10 miles from Lakes of the Clouds Hut which sits just below the peak of Mount Washington. I am sitting at the base so today I will enter the Presidential Mountain Range passing Webster, Jackson, Pierce (Clinton), and Franklin mountains on my way up to the 6,288 ft peak of Mt. Washington.
