Day 46 Hurricane mountain shelter

Miles hiked 10. 9
Total miles 510.9

Today was cold wet and windy. We cut our plans short when we came to this nice, new, clean shelter. We were not going to be able to do the 10 miles to the next shelter and setting up a tent in this wind and rain when we were soaking wet did not seem very enticing.  We had a good conversation with the two other guys here tonight. One of the guys is doing a section hike now, but he has hiked the AT and PCT twice. He had some interesting stories. Kaboose

Today was short.we hiked 10 miles. It was hypothermia weather today. We are going to hike 20 miles tomorrow. The trail was easy. Sassafras

  1. Have to love those shelters. Just finished reading an article about a Army vet, John Rivera who thru-hiked the PCT. Amazing story
