Today's Miles: 8.1

Total Mileage: 8.1

 

Today we hiked the approach trail. Many stairs, very good looking waterfall. Said goodbye to some family and friends at the top of the falls and headed off, blue blazing away. 

Stopped at the Black Gap shelter for about an hour to rest the feet and grab some food. Made it to the top of Springer Mountain and into camp before the rain started. 

I'll let you know tomorrow how my shelter half held up.
