Gues what everyone? It is raining. Oh and did I mention that PTD says this last week was rainy and lot of steep ups and downs.
PTD passed the Priest Shelter which is named for the massif dominating area. By the Tye River part of the AT was relocated in 2008. It now passes 2 mountain laurel thickets and remnants of long abandoned farms. Neat to see. Went up and over Three Ridges Wilderness too.
Ponytail stayed at Maupin Field Shelter – built in 1960 sleeps about 6 w/ High Tower, Flying Scotsmen and Nobody. There were also some day hikers there. 18.3 miles was the total for today.
One of the day hikers gave me their phone # and said when you get to the trail head in Waynesboro call me and I will give you a ride to town. AWESOME! PTD thinks he will take him up on this.
