Today was the first day that the snow here in Connecticut was completely melted. I was finally able to get my new boots muddy and wear my new Osprey pack on my hike! It was a short mile, a little less than 2 miles and it felt AMAZING to be outside in the cool air. Here is a whole bunch of pics for you to gander at! I will be back tomorrow since I will be updating everyday from here on out. I have 52 days until my hike……… YESS!
