Another few days with varying fortunes. The week started disastrously with the loss of a vital piece of equipment. The views continued to make the heart fly and the Smoky Mountain got closer and closer.

Along the way, the humanity of hikers was on full display, especially one night in a very full shelter (Picture thanks to Ashley “Boomer” Enders). These are the evenings to relish and the ones that will stick in my mind long after the hike is over.

Now, after my longest day, I’m set to tackle the Smokies from Sunday and hope to report back after I reach Newfound Gap. Bring ‘em on.
