Happy Six Years

Free Shower at the Powerplant

This morning we grabbed a quick shower at a powerplant along the trail here in Connecticut, and then walked a few more miles into town.

Salisbury, CT (Mile 1484.2)

Today is out 6th year anniversary and we spent the morning walking along the Housatonic River making our way to Salisbury, CT. We'll be taking the rest of Saturday off along with Sunday and enjoy the charm of this quintessential New England town.

Tonight we'll enjoy a dinner at the White Hart Inn. Tomorrow we'll no doubt be spending some time at The Roast Coffee House. When we head out on Monday morning we're 7.3 miles from the Massachusetts line and the Birkshire Mountains.

We haven't seen a tick for days and couldn't be happier.

Celebrating 6 Years with Maria

UPDATE: We ended up staying with a fiesty 78 year old German woman with a sharp tongue and a great sense of humor. Maria takes hikers into her home and treats them like family. We shared our anniversary picnic dinner in her yard and had a wonderfully memorable stay.
