Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Berkshire view!
Is that Mt. Everett in the distance on the left side of the picture?
I was up there one evening after a nice rain to see an amazing view from the old fire tower – back near 1990.
I’m not sure what that mountain is, Fred. We hiked past so many, and without maps, we often didn’t know what was around us. If the trail didn’t pass over it, we usually had no idea! Most AT hikers don’t carry maps, just guidebooks like the Thruhiker’s Companion or the AT Guide. These books would tell you landmarks on the trail, distances, elevations, and small maps of towns near the trail, along with water sources, locations of shelters and tentsites – sort of “bare bones” necessary information.
