8/22 Bromley Mountain (3)

September 25, 2013 at 9:53 pm

After deciding we didn’t need the comforts of civilization yesterday, we totally woke up and got a real breakfast.  We resupplied by the price chopper and we were off… after a lot of hanging around town.  We lost Limey to a bad cold and gained Talker while we were hitching.  His exceptionally long arms got us a hitch almost immediately, since he could stand on the sidewalk and reach clear across three lanes of traffic.

We hiked up Mt. Bromley and discovered that it was the best place in Vermont.

Also, the ski cabin lets hikers stay.  So we did!  We decided we had earned a near-o to the top of a mountain, and that we probably weren’t going to get an opportunity like this one again.

A lot of fun things happened.

Hagrid and Killer even showed up!

Then things got fun and weird.

Today was one of those days on the trail that have nothing to do with hiking, and everything to do with the experience of traveling and meeting people who are in the same place as you.  Thanks for the trail-vacation Bromley!
