Long slog of a day today. Not sure what caused me to go so slow today, but I'm going to blame it on the terrain changing back into a more mountainous state.
Crossed into Vermont this morning. The Long Trail and the Appalachian Trail merge for the next hundred miles or so. Definitely a lot more people on this section, most of them LT hikers, so it's like being transported back to the beginning of my thru hike (as such, I'm certain my food bag won't get nibbled on tonight because a few LT hikers have left a veritable smorgasbord of food out on the picnic table).
Looks like it's going to be a tough go until this thing is over.
