Carter Notch Hut Day 39 Monday
I was doing some stretching today. Something I should do every day but don’t. I did notice some tightness and soreness. The next thing was that toe rises were very easy. My calves are getting quite a workout on the up hill climbs.
I amn acquiring some interesting tan lines. Sitting on top of mountain summits on very sunny days has given my ultra white legs a new colour. Unfortunately I have a sock line, a short line, and a band around the back of my knee from the bandanas. I also have a band across the back of my hands from the strap on my hiking poles, and across my forehead from the bandana. I should peel down a little on summits when I rest.
Tomorrow I will be doing the wildcat range. People say it is difficult and to expect it to take a least 5 hours. Coming down off it will also be hard. I was going to try for Osgood tomorrow so I can summit Washington the next day. Tomorrow will be long both time-wise and distance-wise. Madison will be a difficult climb the next day but it will be a ridge walk to Washington after that. I am going to try to get in and out of here early tomorrow to get to Osgood at a decent time. I also think that the herd is nearby so sites may be at a premium. Although they could have stayed at Imp, I doubt they would have pressed for Pincham.
