Day 32: Today started out very cold and windy. Needless to say I was not too happy plus still sick…So I got ready early and started hiking fast to get warm.
We quickly came upon some amazing balds on Hump Mountain. This place was very hard to climb but I couldn’t believe my eyes at its beauty.
We made it to a highway and a man was sitting there waiting to give free rides into Roan Mountain. How could we turn that down?!
So we took a free ride.
Since we were in town we went ahead and resupplied on food to get us to Damascus and continued hiking.
We hit some more amazing views. Like Jasons Falls
I also Hit 400 miles!!!! Can you believe it?!
Today was so long and I feel like I did so much! In a good way! I have enjoyed doing things on the spur of the moment like going into town. I loved it. The group I hiked with today was really great and at camp it was a great time bonding.
I felt a little bit better this morning but still sound like crap.
We came up Into a National forest. I have completely forgotten the name. But it was so pretty!! Alot of trees with these pink flowers blooming
And Laurel fork falls was magnificent.
The Trail then took us right next to river some parts were on a rock ledge that I found to be so fun!
It was a sunny beautiful day and I was loving it till the last 3 miles I thought I was going to die. My body was just exhausted, we were climbing a big mountain, and we were finishing up a 22 mile day. Thankfully planner was with me this day to keep me going.
We did a Solid 19 miles.
A few miles in we came up to Watagua Lake.
While leaving the were two awesome people. Granny and old goat who were doing trail magic.
The terrain today has eased up which I am thankful for.
I feel better but still not 100 percent. Pretty Sick and tired of being sick and tired. Going to bed early and bb hopefully the storm tonight won’t be bad.
Not excited for rain and cold tomorrow but hopefully it’ll hold off till we are in town!
