4/17/18 Day 268 AT Day 28: Station Hostel at 19 E to Moreland Gap Shelter

May 3, 2018

 

 

Miles: 20

Steps: 42,017

Elevation Gain:  5,463 feet

Faith in Humanity: women at shelter were day hiking and gave us hikers a few chocolate chip cookies they freshly baked!  Thank you so very much!

 

The Station was sweet, but the super springy mattress (was it a mattress or a box spring?) cut a hole in my pants.  Oh well, the owners were super nice and even gave me a ride to the Trailhead at 8am.Really cool waterfalls today, particularly enjoyed Jones Falls.  I felt a bit slow today but the terrain was supposedly easy. 

 

Looking at the over 5,000 feet of Gain I’m not so sure.I got to the shelter pretty early but started reading a bunch and ended up staying.  Camped with great peeps: Webster, Patches, Sprout, Oven, Blaze, Declass, Bacon, Crash.  Good times! Bacon was generous and shared a bit of magic around the fire.

Super excited to see Bob Peoples again tomorrow and stay at his place.  Hope he’s around!
