Hello New England

Stairs ascending "The Ledges"
On Sat 9/29 I crossed the NY/CT border, officially entering the New England section of the AT. The weather continued to be rainy and on the warm side--70s in the day--making for some uncomfortable hiking. Where is the beautiful Fall weather? Although the CT section of AT is only 50 miles there's a lot of diversity. Several steep rocky climbs, riverine walks along the beautiful Housatonic, and the beginnings of dense forests of hemlock, ferns, and birches.
