After five nights in a three-bedroom camp with cousins from New York, we headed back to Vermont from Hague, NY. Friend Beth joined us for six days for hiking. We had time after moving to Branbury State Park to hike into Silver Lake, Moosalamoo Wilderness Area. Half-way back I realized I’d left my hiking poles by the water. Three days later I still have not hiked back up to get them! That’s how busy we are.
Predicted rainfall did not begin until we were back at campsite. In our fist go at setting up Wren’s canopy, we were slow. Picnic table and benches got wet as did Beth putting up her tent. Bess was already wet from her dip in the brook along the trail. When we finally were under cover, the light rain ceased. Good practice.
