The whites part two 6/27

After finishing our work for stay at galehead hut by sweeping and folding blankets, WD and I climbed immediately up and over north and south twin mountains. We didn’t know it when we woke up, but this was going to be one of our longest days on trail. After the twins it is a nice ride down to Ethan pond which stretches a solid 7 miles.

Here, I took a photo of what we were looking at. So as you can see, the twins on the far right, followed by slope to the drop off to the pond. We stopped in at the Zealand hut for lunch and met some of the crew that would be at mizpah hut later that night. Fortunately they have a fast easy trail to get there. And see that climb ( approximately 300 feet ) after the pond? Webster cliffs. Also known as the climb of doom. It was all hands and feet climbing boulders. WD and I barely made it before dark, and we were trail running by the end of it. Not sure where we found the energy, but neither or is wanted to be out on those rocks after dark. So we ran. It was rather exhilarating, and I we both felt really awesome having done a 20 mile day in the whites. Took us all day, but we still took breaks, took photos, and had lots of fun. Don’t worry, we even out the milage later on with a 4 mile day!
Slept at mizpah with an awesome croo ( yes that is how they spell it ) and were well fed and welcomed for another work for stay. Mile 1825.8 to 1846.9.
