Appalachian Trail Day 5

03-04-01  Day 5

14.7 miles, AT  –  41.3
Woods Hole Shelter – Low Gap Shelter

Day 3 of rainHit the trail at 7:45 AM and did my first 4000 foot (Blood Mountain).  I got to Neels Gap at 10:20 AM.  I didn’t shower but I did dry my dirty clothes.  For some reason I was in a rush to get to Low Gap Shelter. Rain was forecasted so I did 14.7 miles to get here.  My feet hurt from the miles and impact they take.  I bought some postcards, bagels, hand lotion and a knife.  I forgot to ship back my film and I didn’t but any and now I have 1-2 pictures for the next 5-6 days.  I need to make a list before I get to town from now on.I saw some type of sparrow today, a squirrel (gray) too.

The sun came out for a bit.  I finally got to see some of Georgia.  Today was a tough day.  1  4000 footer, 3  3000 footers, lots of gaps too.

Look out on Cowrock Mtn.

I got a Coke and a banana.  I didn’t get to camp until around 4-4:30 PM.  I was so tired.  I barely got my supper down.  Had to put my food bag on a bear safe cable.  It’s raining again.  It should be getting cold tonight and then warming up until Friday and more rain.  Saw more woodpeckers (Hairy or Downy).



Get out there!
