August 22

It rained off and on throughout the night...happy to be inside! We ate breakfast at the inn again and got back on the trail mid-morning. The trail went through a state park campground so we stopped to take a break. The air was chilly but the sun was warm. We ate an early lunch and then I laid down and actually fell asleep for a bit! I've never been one for naps but napping in the sunshine is quite enjoyable. The trail followed around Kent Pond a few miles later, giving us beautiful scenery but lots more mud! We also passed by Thundering Falls and afterward met a couple hiking south to the falls. They asked us the usual questions and the man told us as we were leaving, "May you have peace and safety and health." It made me smile.
We then headed up steep but surprisingly easy Quimby Mountain. It sprinkled on us a bit at the top but stopped after just a few minutes. We are at Stony Brook Shelter tonight and it started raining just as we were finishing dinner. The area around the shelter is of course nice and muddy and swampy. It's a chilly night too, with lows in the upper 40s. Looking forward to my cold weather gear!
