Tengo, Stick and I arrived at about the same time, which was 5:45 p.m., at the junction with White Brook Trail. There wasn’t an official campsite here, but we knew after reading a comment posted in the Guthooks app it would have plenty of room to pitch our tents.
This turned out to be true, so we decided to stop here.
We had already completed nearly 15 miles today. Continuing another 2.3 miles to the next shelter would mean going over one more mountain, then probably descending in the dark. We didn’t feel a need to do that.
The evening was chilly again, and seemed colder than it had been last night. Fortunately, though, we didn't have as much wind.
Looking ahead, if we are able to continue putting in about 15 miles a day, we should be able to summit Mt. Katahdin on Thursday. Right now, though, the weather forecast doesn’t look good for that day.
