AT Thru-Hike Day 121

The Blue Barn “Hostel” (407 feet) mile 1741.1 to Etna Rd. (825 feet) mile 1756.8 for a 15.7 mile day.

On the road walk out of town today we passed a church that is abandoned. Growing up a southern Baptist, I can’t comprehend a church being vacant, especially a church that is listed on the National Historic Registry.

I will say, the town this church is in is called, West Hartford, Vermont, and in 2011 a lot of the village was devastated by Tropical Storm Irene when the White River overflowed its banks and whipped out a lot of the homes and buildings along the River. The home that sat next to the Blue Barn was one of them.

All in all it was a fairly uneventful day except for passing into our 13th state of New Hampshire.

Hanover, New Hampshire is the home of Dartmouth College, a nice little Ivy League college. The trail actually passed right by one of their ball fields. It appears that they wanted to make certain that the hiker trash did not use their fields as a campsite! Haha fair enough I guess, I mean look how pretty that grass is, oh and it’s flat!
