Day #40-They call it Vermud for a reason; Miles hiked: 17.4

Today there was more rain predicted, but it turned out to be sunny and gorgeous! After putting on wet clothes this morning, I couldn’t have been more thankful.

First up this morning was climbing up and over Glastenberry Mtn. There was a fire tower where I could pick out all the peaks I’m about to head over. Stratton is up for tomorrow!The rest of the day was a very intimate encounter with Vermud. After the rain yesterday, the trail was a literal mud pit/creek. My shoes were already wet, so I freely sloshed through it but they got sucked into the slop a few times.Double Dip, is you’re reading this, I found your favorite creek to fall in.Tomorrow there is a 90% chance of thunderstorms all day…gonna be a wild ride, but going into town tomorrow!

Ps-the cell service will be spotty from here on out, so please have patience with blog posts.
