Took the day off today and hiked the 2 mile trail up to Flat Top Mountain this morning. For those of you who know the area, Flat top is the mountain next to the more famous Peaks of Otter here in Bedford.
I did not have a chance to set up my hammock today, I sold my ENO single and my new Trek Light Double arrived in the mail while I was gone, it would have been too cold anyway, me with no quilts yet.
Still, it was a glorious day with snow blowing around high on the mountain this morning and last night with nearly half an inch on top and more predicted for tomorrow! Found a great little rock house where I held up for a couple of hours. I brought the Brasslite alcohol stove and after fighting a damp wood fire for an hour or so, I finally fired it up and had tea in about 4 minutes! I was hoping to get the wood fire going to dry some stuff out but it wasn't cooperating. I put on spare dry socks, finished up some potato soup and headed back down. All in all a very leisurely outing. Hope you enjoy the pix!
