Super long day today, at least that's how t felt when I was finished.
Slack packed up and over Mansfield, spent about a hour at a cabin on my way up talking with some AT thru hikers who hiked last year.
As I made my way up the last mile, the cloud cover was crazy thick and the winds were blowing pretty hard. At the top there was a GMC caretaker who I spent another hour chatting with.
Cruised along the ridge for a couple of miles, watched as the clouds slowly lifted and the views got better and better.
Last half of the day was a slog, every mile felt like it took incredibly longer than it should have. Probably should of done the miles over the course of two days instead of all at once, it was pretty brutal out there.
Finished as the sun was setting. Sat in the gravel parking lot waiting for my ride, gorging myself on snacks, watching the pink and orange sky of the sunset.
