Passover – “I forget that climbing mountains really isn’t that hard.”
Ember – “yea, you just kind of walk up it”
Drizzle and little hard rain. First night on the trail in a shelter. And THANK GOODNESS. So much mud. Shelter full of awesome people. Ember didnt notice but I had seen little heart shaped rocks (maybe 8 or 9) placed in pretty places throughout the trail. In the shelter journal he noticed someone named heart rock! And sure enough he was right there. We caught back up with a nice guy “J Lo” and there are a couple others here. Two story shelter!
Puds- pointless ups and downs – Georgia is full of them. We are at deep gap shelter tonight. Going into hiawassee tomorrow and hoping to be in NC by tomorrow night. 15.5 miles today. If we make it out of town tomorrow in a timely fashion its only 12 miles to NC so I figure we’ll make it. Home sweet home!
Of course the only photos on my phone are of Thanksgiving dinner. Mmm mom is the best. Can’t wait to get the Asheville where I know cookies await.
BTW: only enough battery to blog… but one of the highlights of my day are getting into the tent and reading the comments. So thank you thank you thank you. Y’all are awesome.
