Day 23 Rain

The watch is broken so I can’t give times of my hiking. Left town really late. Passed Speedy, then Arlo. Arlo (EZ Glider) and I stayed together until town where we met BA.

I saw more beaver ponds. I love to see ponds like these in the middle of no where. It such a nice scene compared to what we have in eastern MA.

We almost have a view of Greylock but it was half in the clouds.

I-90 or as it’s called back east “the Mass Pike”

We hit a Shell Gas Station for snacks and lunch. I hit the trail again at 4 PM. The climb up Greylock was nice. I did a little trail work on the way up. I redirected some water that was on the trail. I’m half way up Greylock. Tonight should be cool since were at 2750 feet tonight.

I got hissed at by a ruffed grouse. I got between her and her chicks. She fanned her tail and hissed terribly at me. She was pissed off. I thought she was a rattlesnake.

This shelter has a bad porcupine problem. So tonight, hopefully, I’ll see my first porkie. They have chewed up this shelter a lot.

Scatman 2011- The momma grouse scared the shit out of me.  It was kinda like a small dog who makes as much noise as a big dog, and let me tell you she had a bark!  Hiking with the new crew was good.  I don’t recall getting out of town but I remember the time spent in the woods.  As I went to bed I noticed there were a small pile of rocks on the beam next to me.  They were for throwing at the porcupines.

2018- I finally saw my first porcupine on the CDT in Colorado, which was 2015!
