Whitley Gap Shelter to Neel Gap. 7.9 miles. 31.7 miles to go.
Had a great night at the shelter. Started a fire and had cell service so I was able to call home and talk with the girls.
Woke up, ate breakfast, then fell back asleep for an hour since I didn’t have too far to go today.
Had cool weather and a little sun for the afternoon. Made it to Neels Gap at 4:00. The trail goes right through the outfitter/hostel. This is the only spot the AT goes through a building.
I climb 1350 feet up Blood Mountain in the morning. Looking forward to some good views.
