I’m camped at a site about three miles from the next shelter. I’m the only one here and it’s nice to be away from the shelter crowds. If all goes well, I should be in Erwin on Tuesday. It was a good day of hiking, I hiked 11 miles and felt strong. I seem to have finally found a pace that works for me on the uphills. There were lots of surprises today. This morning I walked across a huge bald on the mountain. It was beautiful. Lots of berry bushes, but they’re not in season yet. Also passed a beautiful cascade running down the side of a hill. The amount of water here is refreshing and I appreciate it much more after living in Arizona.
