Today I woke up to temperatures in the mid twenties. I hiked over Blood Mountain, where the winds were over 40 mph. It was a pretty good hike up. Came across an area of interesting ice crystals in the soil on the way up.
The oldest shelter on the whole trail is up there, which I think was built in the 1930s.
There were some great views and luckily we could see them.
Hiking down Blood Mountain was a little steeper and more rocky. Then hiked into Neels Gap, where there are two small resorts. Two guys around my age and I got a room for the night, where the resort did our laundry and we had pizza. A strong cold wind has been blowing all day long.
Tomorrow is food resupply day in the morning, then back to the trail.
I hope everyone is doing well back home.
