Day 29
After zeroing yesterday it was so great to get back on the trail today! We started our hike with an easy 3 miles to Laurel Falls and then uphill on Pond Mtn. I ran into Bamboo Bob and then Grandbob on the mountain, Grandbob telling me of trail magic at the beach of Watauga Lake! I got steak, hard-boiled eggs, and donuts! After getting to Watauga Dam, a nasty storm blew in. Wind and cold rain for a little while made for great company while walking up a steep mountain! Miles and Biscuits caught up to us about 2 miles from Vanderver Shelter and I convinced them to move on 3.8 more miles to a campsite. We made it 1:10 and had a nice fire before bed. The photo on this post is a ‘Chuck Norris’ meme of sorts about Bob Peoples, owner of Kincora Hostel and a trail legend šŸ™‚
