Day #15 – 100 Miles

I left Carter gap shelter early this morning and headed on down the trail. The first 4 miles went by very quickly.

The highlight of the day was climbing Albert Mountain. The climb was steep with some technical areas, but it was rewarded with amazing views at the top and a fire tower. The top of the mountain marked 100 miles on the trail from Springer Mountain.

Marker on rock = Steep climb

I ended up at Longbranch shelter for the night. I’m settled in the shelter to sleep. Tomorrow I head into Franklin North Carolina for shower, laundry, and some rest.
