I spent about 30 minutes in Gatlinburg in the morning trying to get a hitch out of town and back to the AT at Newfound Gap. Then a hiker (Cyclops) and his father stopped and picked me up and a guy I was hiking with. So awesome and thankful.
Most of the day was in the clouds hiking, but it was relatively warm, which I appreciated. Many amazing views were missed, but I am sure many more lie ahead. The clouds literally did part some, so I was not denied views totally.
Made it to Tri-Corner Knob Shelter for the night. Hiked 15.1 miles.
I downloaded a book called Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. I will read that at night in my tent some each night. I downloaded one other book (The Gifts of Imperfection) too, that I will get to. Thanks for the recommendations.
