Greta and I are at mile 164.7 after a little over two weeks on the trail. Taking a break here today to resupply food and do laundry. Tonight we are staying at the fontana "hilton" shelter, one of the fancier or fanciest shelters in the south (i.e. has real bathrooms and showers).
Yesterday we had our first real snow on the trail. The weather has typically been a pleasant high of fifty or higher during the day and near freezing at night. But yesterday we got near 4 inches of snow overnight and throughtout the day. Today is a warm 55ish and sunny.
Tomorrow we enter the Smokie Mountains!
Oh and we reached 30 bird species on our list (elsewhere on this blog), including a bunch of lifers! Been hearing Barred Owls almost everyday!
Pictures from the last few days attached.
Happy to be here and feeling good,
Chris aka Junco
