DAY 6: PERU PEAK SHELTER - GREENWALL SHELTER
15.4 Miles today on to Greenwall shelter. After a leisurely start, I spent the first part of the day playing hiker tag with an older gentleman named Tom as we both made our way along Griffith Lake and up the mist-wrapped Baker Peak. We ate lunch together at Lost Pond shelter, before losing each other in the postmeridian. My feet had been saturated by the day’s serving of trail soup, so I took a couple breaks for preventative maintenance before pushing onwards through the lovely, sun-dappled trail by Little Rock Pond. In the last hours of daylight, deep in a stunning coniferous forest, I ran into Midnight Dinner, who set a fast pace but got us to Greenwall just before full dark, with a little spur trail interlude to watch the sunset over the Taconic range from atop White Rocks Cliff.
