Day 13: Mile 130.8
Things are on the up and up! After a bitterly cold and rainy night, woke up, packed up a wet tent and hit the trail.
Although the sun never came out today, it was actually a breath of fresh air to walk among the dripping trees, cool air and dense fog.
Granted on numerous occasions the burnt wood throughout the trail had me thinking there were bears lurking about, but hey, the trail keeps you on your toes!
Today’s 10 miles led to another bald with an old fire tower…but good ol’ fog kept us from seeing much at all.
Slipping and sliding through the mud, I am getting closer and closer to getting into the smokies. Crazy to think I’ll be entering in less than a week!
The ankle is hanging in there, but I’ve heard an amazing pair of trail angels in the form of my Aunt and Uncle, have sent an ankle brace my way to pick up at the Nantahala Center tomorrow. Thanks!!
