Water was frozen this morning, and temperatures were frigid. Wind was still strong this morning as well, making it even colder.
Got to Sam's Gap and there was an older gentleman making scrambled eggs and hash brown potatoes. Best trail magic to date. After eating we had a little task to do of maintaining the cemetery that was close pad. I filled up a bucket of dirt and poured it on a grave that was being refurbished.
Climbed up Big Bald today as well, great views and the weather had warmed up nicely by that time. One side of the bald was frozen, the other side of the bald was defrosting in the sun creating muddy, slippery conditions.
Long day of hiking, longest day yet at 21 miles. Tomorrow is Erwin, TN.
