Cold and rainy. Had to climb up Blood Mountain today. It was a 1400 foot climb over 4 miles which isn’t too bad. I have no issue going up. Made it in good time to the shelter on the summit. Me and Gus had a snack then headed out because it was windy and we were in the middle of a cloud. Stop too long and we would get really cold. Gus was even shivering. It took me forever to get down. Glad that is over.
I met up with Cody and Evan at Mountain Crossings Outfitter at Neels Gap. We made our way over to Blood Mountain cabins and got a cabin for the night. We had to sneak Gus in because they don’t allow pets. Felt bad about that but it was really nice to have a hot shower and comfortable bed. Going to take tomorrow off and maybe another day depending on the condition of my knees. Talk to you all later.
FYI: No wifi here. Pics will have to wait until a later date. Sorry about that.
