Day 28

Location: Roaring Fork Shelter

Today's Miles: 15.4

Total Miles: 255.7

Long day of many climbs today. The climb out of Standing Bear was a big one, 2,200 feet of elevation over five miles. Then we walked about halfway down that elevation, only to walk back up another hill.

But, at least the scenery is beginning to change. Today we walked over Max Patch, a huge bald with beautiful views. There were quite a few people out on the bald, a few families picnicking and others just milling about.

Longest day yet, and tomorrow will be another. We'll see tomorrow if I head the eighteen miles into town or stop short and spend another night in the shelter.
