At sunrise we woke up and sat on the dock at Upper Goose Pond to watch the sunrise.

It was incredible. 
…Then we got pancakes!

Hagrid found a women’s shirt and looked very good for all of this.

And we tried to bead the Voice’s beard.

Goose Pond Cabin, you will be missed…

Today was a very important day for us.  Today, we crossed I-90, the highway that we have driven many times.  On multiple occasions, we looked up from I-90 to see the ‘Appalachian Trail’ bridge crossing spanning those four lanes and hoped we would get a chance to be on it.  We took full advantage of our opportunity by yelling and dancing our way across.

It was a big moment for us.

Our bellies still not full apparently, we hitched into town with eight hikers, which is quite a feat, and got some second breakfast in Lee, MA.  The day ended with a short hike to ‘the cookie lady’s’ house, a hiker sanctuary owned by an older couple who made us cookies and allowed us to camp on their lawn. We live a very difficult life.
