Too hot for this Vermonter. Sunny today, and should be all week, but the temp was in the 80s with very little wind and no clouds. I’ve decided that heat is simply Kryptonite to this Mountain Man. Lucky for me, this pasty-white Superhero (Hi Sarah!) at least packed his sunscreen. Nice walk today, and spent some time just soaking my feet in a small cool stream that the trail crossed over. Got to start getting in the habit of sucking down more water to battle this heat though. Hard to imagine it was snowing 4 days ago! Great to be back on the trail, having survived the vortex that is Damascus.
