Woke up this morning in a thick, warm and humid fog this morning at Tri-Corner Knob Shelter. As the fog was blown against the screen door of my tent it started making things wet, but not too bad. Had a quick breakfast and got hiking.
The fog burned off rather quickly today. The sun came out and it felt warm. I hiked in shorts and the sleeves on my shirt rolled up.
Had some great landscape views today. Also saw and smelled entire hillsides covered in wildflower blooms. A few small blue butterflies were out and some birds were starting to mate.
It was a great day on the AT. Today was a mostly downhill hill. Covered about 17 miles today, dropped about 4,500 feet in elevation and exited Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Tonight, I am camped at a stealth site along acreek with several small waterfalls. Just me and 1 guy I was hiking with.
Expecting some rain and thunderstorms anytime now (tonight). Nothing severe as far as I can tell. I am all hunkered down just in case. Here it comes, I hear the roar of the wind in the trees starting just now.
Hope all my family, friends and followers are doing great! Good night from some remote campsite on the stormy AT. Pace Car is parked.
