6/19 Day 94

We woke up to a hot and humid morning. We passed Seth Warner Shelter, Cogdon Shelter and climbed down a set of large, steep stone steps to road access into Bennington. The climb out of Bennington was long and steep so we took a break at Melville Nauheim Shelter for more water. With the heat and humidity what it was, we couldn’t seem to get enough water. We finished our day with a 2,200 ft climb to Goddard Shelter. With families out for summer the shelter was full but we found a great spot to tent in the pines. Black flies, mosquitos and gnats started to become a real problem so tenting worked out for the best. We hiked 24 miles for the day.
