Double springs shelter, smokies, less than 200 to go
So crazy! Did Clingmans Dome in the dark today, and it was actually really cool. You could see Gatlinburg twinkling in the night, and really want to see the observation space ship tower. Naddy was great bringing us tons of food today, and the weather was beyond perfect, sunny and so warm!
So many people came up to us at the Newport gap being curios, celeb hiker stays it seemed. One man gave us the nicest prayer and it warmed my heart. A lot of people said they’ll keep us in their prayers, what a nice thing to do.
My body is certainly feeling it. My right knee keeps popping and the hips are so tight ouch. And don’t get me started on the balls of my feet. Butttt being warm at night has been a lifesaver. And my appetite is fully back! I am eating like a monster yet again. Well, just a few more weeks of trail life… then… hmm
