Rich Mtn Fire Tower 6/17

Started at Hot Springs, NC
Ended at Rich Mtn Fire Tower
8.2 miles

Today we got one bar of cell phone service!! The hike out was uphill but the kids did great. At the fire tower we had our first trail angel encounter. A guy was up checking out the view and had an extra banana that he gave us. He also played some music using a speaker and a cardboard box.

Great camp site, but the gnats are swarming us. We are wearing our rain gear.
