Day #22 – Up with Legs!

Along the Trail

Today was the big climb; over 3,000 feet in 6 miles. To my surprise, I covered the distance in under four hours. I’ve got trail legs!!! (At least for now.) I’m staying in the Sassafras Gap shelter for the night. There are storms predicted, and the weather is supposed to clear tomorrow. It’s over Cheoah Bald tomorrow to Stecoah Gap.
