It was nice to have the Appalachian Trail visit a college town. Dartmouth College, a private liberal arts college established in 1969, is located in Hanover, New Hampshire. As we crossed the bridge heading into town we were welcomed by a former hiker offering sandwiches, watermelon slices, and sodas for us. After a quick meal we walked down to where the Dartmouth rowing team has a dock installed and went for a quick swim. Afterwards, most of us hung out the rest of the day at the drill field on campus just relaxing and resting up for the upcoming White Mountains. The Dartmouth Outdoor Club maintains a large section of the Appalachian Trail and are known for doing an outstanding job.
