AT Near Finerty Pond, Washington

Monday, Memorial Day, three of us walked on the Appalachian Trail from Pittsfield Road, Washington, south to Rte 20 in Lee, a good nine miles. The spring wildflowers were magnificent. We met several thru-hikers and some section hikers who had spent the night at Upper Goose Pond cabin. They each remarked on what delicious pancakes they had for breakfast!

The cabin has volunteer caretakers who serve weekly from May through October. Part of the job is to cook pancakes for the guests. Some have been doing it for decades and really enjoy meeting hikers from all over the country, and the world.

This clump of Pink Lady's Slippers had seven blossoms. Wow!
Clintonia
Painted Trillium.
