Byron and I left Saturday, September 26th for our first vacation as a married couple. We are not really the resort/go to the beach/stay at a B&B kind of people. We decided to go on a week long hike on the Appalachian Trail in Vermont (or Long Trail as they like to call that particular section in VT).
We hiked 5 days and 4 nights. It was a little rainy and cold, but we stayed cozy and warm in our hammock at night.
It was a beautiful time of year. Actually, we were told by all the locals that is was the perfect week to be there because of all the beautiful colors of the trees. Next week most of the leaves should be gone....it's hard to believe....
A lot of my family and friends were very concerned for me to go on this hike in light of my pregnancy. I did have a really hard time in the car on our way out there and was only able to drive a total of 3 hours. However, for some reason, when we got out to Vermont I felt great! I only had one bad day on the trail and we took it really easy. So, I'd like to think that the Vermont wilderness cured my "all day" sickness (maybe we need to go back there for our next pregnancy). Either way, I'm feeling great still and we had a great time on our hike!
This is our stove that Byron made out of a Fosters' beer can. It worked great and is really light-weight. The picture to the right is us cooking a dehydrated meal.
