We stayed overnight in Akron & had dinner with my husband's best man and his girlfriend. Then we continued our drive to meet up with our hiking friends.
I worked with some new yarn on the drive. It came from one 0f the boxes Dan's grandmother won at a "Chinese Auction."
We hiked Mt Marcy the first day. It was my first mountain!

But us girls were too sore & stiff to do any more hiking the next day, so we dropped the boys off to hike the Gothics and we hung around the cabin, recuperating.
Before we left, I sold one earwarmer right off my needles to the co-owner of our accommodations, Mountain Brook Lodge!
Then he asked about a hat for himself, which I gladly made as a compliment to his wife's earwarmer. (see the matching yarn in his stripes?)
They were probably the best hosts I have ever stayed with [commercially]. They held bonfires every night in the courtyard to get to know their guests & really created a sense of community. We felt like we were staying in a friend's home! (ex. I forgot to bring milk for my coffee so Al brought me a glad of milk to keep in our fridge!)
All four of us can't wait to return. :)
