10.5 miles, AT – 26.6 .5 miles to shelter
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!
Cardinals, juncos and ruffled grouse? Oh, I really miss the East Coast sometimes. Really enjoying seeing your posts and photos.
Some place I have a full list of the birds I saw. Once the leave were out bird sights stopped fast. Ruffed Grouse, I warned my grammar and spelling were not altered in the first post. haha
