Gooch Gap Shelter

My trek has taken me over Hawk Mountain then Justus Mountain as I make my way to the Gooch Mountain Shelter. There were a lot of people on the trail today too. I met 6 hikers from Germany. They said that they saw a documentary about the Appalachian Trail on their TV back home and just had to come to the United States and hike it. There were also 2 Boy Scout Troops hiking the trail. Just before setting up my tent I went to the nearby stream and got some water to fill my bottles. I got out the box with my water treatment chemicals (Aqua Mira) and took them out of the box and proceeded to treat the water. While I was doing this, a little mouse came over to me, climbed into the box, checked it out then climbed back out and went on his way. He was oblivious to my presence.

Appalachian Trail - 2013-2016

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains.
