After our long hike yesterday, I wanted something short and easy for today. I studied the maps and finally found a trail that didn’t go uphill. It was a very short piece of the AT across the road from Pinkham Notch Visitor Center. It was most appealing because at the half-mile mark was a pond. That’s what I wanted--a level trail with a pond. With rain in the forecast for the afternoon, we headed out right after breakfast.

So our day was filled with blessings--the opportunity to enjoy the creation and the opportunity to reunite with old acquaintances.
