It was a beautiful day of sunshine! I was so happy all day. I had to climb Mount Moosilauke today. The uphill was difficult, but the downhill destroyed me. It was massive boulders that were wet and slick. Every step down felt like I could slip and crash down. I slipped eight times,but thankfully never fell. I did roll my right ankle really badly and hyperextend my right knee just before dropping my full weight on it. Both of those things hurt, but I'm no worse for wear.
I met a hiker named Laura who is working through all of the 4,000+ foot peaks in New Hampshire. There are 48 of them and she has already done 19 of them. We finished around the same time, and she gave me a ride into town as long as I promised not to murder her. I got resupplied and tried to find a place to stay. All the motels were booked and the hostel was too far away. I may or may not have improvised a camping spot instead.
