Waiting for my ride back to the trailhead. Headed to Fontana Village today. Cat Napper, who I’ve been hiking with, apparently badly sprained her ankle on the descent I was talking about yesterday. Some other hikers helped her down the rest of the mountain and she was taken to see a Doctor. LDawg has also returned home to Michigan. After 6 days of rest, his knee is not better. The trail claims another… When I talk about how dangerous it is out here, I’m not joking. I’ll be happy to get to Virginia where the terrain is more forgiving and there will be less days off trail.
