Sheets of rain pelted the windshield of Fred the Forester on Friday evening as I drove into the Maine woods to sleep in a room filled with strangers (a.k.a. a bunkhouse) and pray for tamer weather come morning.
At 5 a.m., I could see the sun rising through the trees. A brisk wind pushed wisps of white clouds across the pale blue sky. It was a perfect day for hiking.
