Day 16, March 30th

Posted by on March 30, 2013

Woke up to rain. Got up and ready to go and back on the trail by about 9:15am. Had a very beautiful climb up Albert Mountain. Low clouds shrouding the lower peaks as I was ascending just over 5000 made it a breathtaking view.


Got to the summit of Albert and climbed the fire tower. It was locked but made for some nice views.

Had another 9 miles to get to Winding Stair Gap to get into Franklin, NC for resupply. Made it to the gap at around 2:15pm. Felt good and made good time. Started to warm up finally as it was 64 degrees. Think I may have got a sunburn on my face. Not bad though.

May take a zero tomorrow or get back on the trail. Haven’t decided yet. Staying at a hotel for the night. Was great to take a hot shower and dry out all my wet gear. Great day!
