Day 110 – VT

Melville Nauheim shelter to Story Spring shelter – 17.5 miles
1626.1 / 559.2

Sitting here at story spring shelter with Fresh, Grasshopper, Topo, and Survivorman. Got a beautiful fire going. Surrounded by the green mountains. It’s very pretty. We said goodbye to the long trailers this morning and hit the trail pretty early at 7:30. The sun for 3 days has dried up MOST but not all of the mud. The one thing that stuck out in everyone’s mind today was the bugs. We were getting lit up by the flies and mosquitoes. The flies have been terrible!

We had some good climbs today and ate lunch at one of them. The fire tower at top of Glastenbury had some tremendous views! We got to see Stratton and Killington off to the distance. We broke and made it down the trail eventually to a giant pond. It was so pretty with a huge beaver dam and a great breeze coming off it.

Eventually we made it to the shelter and built a fire to get rid of the flies. I love Vermont.
