Bryant Ridge Shelter (sleeps 20!)
Started at Wilson Creek Shelter
Ended at Bryant Ridge Shelter
Conserving battery still so the quick recap is:
Boys rolled a lot last night and I didn't get a good night sleep. Had good breakfast but slept in so left shelter late.
Benadryl hiked with us during the morning. Passed giant wall made from huge rock blocks, looked like castle. Blackberries on side of trail.
Hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway for most of the day. They had garbage cans at the overlooks and I was excited to throw our garbage away; 4 people generate a lot of waste.
Swam in Jennings Creek.
Hiked with Seabiscuit (like the horse) after swimming. He was with us for 3 miles, really helped keep us moving.
Tonights shelter is awesome, sleeps 20, 3 levels, covered picnic table.
