Pine Knob Shelter 7.5 miles
Total miles 22.5
I was pretty nervous about the rain that was moving in so I decided to stop early today even though it was only 12:30. I knew I couldn’t make it to the next shelter because of the distance and I did not want to tent in the rain.
I managed to get in a nice long nap this afternoon. After all the travel and excitement I was pretty beat. I laid down from 2-5pm. When I woke up some of the guys from Teahorse hostel were here. They were tenting and managed to get their tents set up before the rain started. Once the rain started the wind really started to gust and the temperature dropped significantly. I was happy to be under a roof.
I did see two deer this morning. They weren’t to far from the trail and I got a pretty good look at them before they took off.
