We hiked out early planning for a short day at Upper Goose Pond Cabin. Our morning was made up of hilly climbing with our bigger climb over Baldy Mountain. We got to Upper Goose Pond Cabin early in the afternoon. The cabin is a listed shelter for thru hikers with bunk room, caretaker, wash station, spring water canoed over from the other side of the pond, swimming access and canoe privileges. We swam, had a boat race and soaked up the sun with Snarf, Glide, Euro and Smilin Joe. When we were finished swimming, the caretaker on duty offered us fresh muffins and a glass of wine and we had a bonfire during dinner. Surreal place! We hiked 14 miles for the day.
