East Branch Lean-to, ME 10 Miles Hiked Today 2099 of 2167 Miles Hiked Total

Evening sets on Pleasant River Another beauty. The rain stopped before we awoke and never came back. The downside was that the clouds did not lift enough to provide views from White Cap Mountain, our last big mountain before Katahdin. I actually stood up there and thought about that - the last peak. Wow.

After lunch and a head dipping in Logan Brook we finished the day at 1:47, a new early arrival record. More napping, reading, and sitting (more like laying) by a pond near the shelter rounded off the afternoon. It was nice to just sit and listen to the wind and the water. I also spent a few minutes tracking down the location of a wood pecker. It was cool to see that sucker go to work!
