11/26/09 Small part of the Appalachian Trail

A day with all kinds of weather conditions-dense fog, clouds, sun, and variations of them. The original plan was to hike a new mountain-Mosquito Mountain- and I thought I had found a shorter route to the trail head but after several miles of slip sliding on muddy logging roads we decided to leave that mountain for another day. We were near Monson, the start of the 'Hundred Mile Wilderness' on the Appalachian Trail, and decided we would hike a small section of that. We hiked to Leeman Brook and back. Some wet areas and a couple of slippery rocks areas (it had rained the night before) but the elevation changes were mostly gradual and it was a nice hike. Kelley was very happy as she really likes to do trails we haven't done before. 3 3/4 hours.
