Day 19 – Looking for Shelter

I walked out of Wine Spring Camp this morning knowing that bad weather was coming tonight. The goal for the day was to get to Cold Spring Shelter in time to get a spot before it filled up. Itchy Feet passed me in the last 1/2 mile and said, “It’s a race to the shelter!” He and I are two of the six that have spots in the small shelter.

On the way there was trail Magic and an amazing view at Wayah Bald. There were also lots of blow downs including one at Wayah Shelter that fell last week in the camping area.

Expectation is the root of all heartache.
