As we entered DAR State Park today, we all felt quite accomplished as we finished our 55 mile day into Vermont. We were happy to leave our mosquito-infested campsite this morning, and took off as soon as possible. Today was by far the hardest yet, especially as we climbed the Graphite Mountain for 5 miles. Despite our tough day, we're glad we persisted and got to see Lake George and Lake Champlain. We admired the view from the Champlain Bridge and straddled the border between New York and Vermont. Dinner—"pasta from the sky" and oreos—was extremely satisfying. We can't wait to explore Burlington tomorrow.
