Gooch Gap – Woods Hole
Day 2 of rain
Slept okay last night but not great. Got up around 6:50 AM, was on trail by 7:50. Today I felt good but like yesterday I didn’t stop much and I hit the wall around 12 PM. Today I saw a cardinal and some dark eyed juncos. Also spooked some ruffed grouse. Saw two centipedes. The hike was easy in the beginning but got a little harder.
I was the first one to the shelter (Woods Hole). A nice shelter but no privy. Took my first sh_ _ AT style.
I need to eat more during the day. Staying with Josh, Trisha, Stacy and Mike tonight. Tomorrow will bring Blood Mountain the first 4000 footer.
Get Out There!
