Comments: Day 3, Probably the easiest 9 miles on the Maine AT, losing elevation most all the way, soft foot bed and there is a canoe for use at Little Swift River Pond Campsite---had to laugh that the privy was right on the trail. We took a good break at the water's edge and missed a few Sobo hiker and we didn't see any until the clearing on the trail maybe a mile before our car, big view of Saddleback ahead. Saw four Spruce Grouse, Choogle caught up to us and asked for ride to town. The three of us walked the last mile out. Had an awesome lunch at Sarge's on their upper outdoor deck. Choogle, Treeboy, Sweetness and Viking ended up joining us too. Good stories and everyone happy to be in town. We all beat the rain that came later.
