Everyone was up early in the Hostel, poking around fixing their own coffee. We hit the trail with the section hiker/musicians and sadly never saw them again. We climbed up and over Blood Mountain then we had really nice cruising trail all morning into the afternoon. Then at the end of the day we had a ton of hills, both big and small that sapped us as we pulled to get to the shelter. We were so happy that it wasn't raining! All Day! Windy and overcast but a nice temperature.
This was our last full hiking day and our last night out. We are in a large shelter (Hawk Mountain Shelter) with 6 other folks, including 2 SOBO's, coin toss and frostbite. Even though we are ready to be done and move on, we are quite sad at leaving our life in the woods. Even though these folks are not with us right now, they have made our adventure that much more wonderful: Tank, Mirage, Nurse, Chip, Doc, Flash Crash, Blaze, Teach, Hummingbird and Sir, MichaelAngelo, John Solo, Finch. There are so many folks that entertained and spurred us on! Thank you!
It will be odd sleeping in a bed and getting water from a faucet.
