7/11 Governor Clement Shelter to Churchill Scott Shelter (8.7 miles)
We got off to a slow start today because we knew it was going to be a short day to get up and over Killington. We got to the shelter (the highest the AT goes up the mountain) and took a short very steep blue blaze to the actual summit of the mountain. The views were great, so we hung out there for awhile. After that we took another short trail to the peak lodge that is open during the summer (the gondola runs for hikers and bikers). We ended up hanging out there for 3 hours since there was free wifi and a place to charge our phones. There were also tables and chairs which is always a huge plus.

The rest of the day was pretty boring. However the trail continued to be very muddy with numerous points where one needs to take very large steps to avoid stepping in puddles or very deep mud.
