We had a short hike into the streets and neighborhoods of Dalton this morning. We hiked through mostly dense pine forest and crossed a multitude of streams. We planned to camp at the local church in Cheshire as we knew we would have to wait until the post office opened the next morning to receive a package. On the way into Cheshire we passed a couple out hiking who offered to take us in for the evening at their home in Adams. Doug and Ruthie generously gave us a bed to sleep in, showers, laundry, dinner and access to their car so we could resupply at the grocery store. We were blown away by their generosity and kindness. We hiked 11.8 miles for the day and ended the day rested and refreshed! Thank you Doug and Ruthie!
