Long Trail Journey's End photos

Susan (Blue Heron) and Carol (Pebble Moss) finishing their epic nine year Vermont Long Trail 272 mile journey on September 11, 2016.
 


 Neither rain, nor mud, wedding delays on Jay Peak, 
 nor a broken arm (atop Mt. Mansfield) could stop
 this pair.

Observations 




                     are the music





                                                                         
                                                                                          of the trail.







And sometimes, what you see 




                                                                  reflects the heart of nature.








Lonely hikers, rest assured,
visitors from across the universe
hike the Vermont Long Trail.

                                                                         My hiking pole was a foot longer 
                                                                            the year I started hiking.





SPECIAL brownies to celebrate. Minty too.

































Rapids crossing.
Hope the rope holds out.



Pam leads the way.
Tight rope walking is
a valuable Long Trail skill.




Susan, it's not a tug of war!






















These boots were made for walking
and that's just what they did.








We are all so very proud of you Susan and Carol!
