Peter’s Mountain shelter 11. 3 miles
Total mileage 134.8
For those of you wondering I did survive my Doyle experience and I am not scared for life.
I left the Doyle about 7:45am a late start for me. I walked through town and literally hit the highway.
As I was leaving town I had a really weird feeling. It felt strange being all alone and almost a little scary. I don’t think I have ever had to do everything for myself and make all my own decisions.
The rain should be moving in around 9pm tonight and continue until Saturday afternoon. I am thinking of taking a zero day here at the shelter to avoid being cold and wet. I think most of the hikers here tonight are going to move on in the rain, I’m just worried about being to cold. The weather is supposed to drop into the mid 30’s on Sunday night and I planned to be at a hostel that night, but if I zero here that will mean being in another shelter that night rather then some place warm and dry. I will make my final decision in the morning.
