Woods Hole Shelter to Gooch Mountain Shelter. 12.3 miles. 15.8 to go.
I woke up and didn’t want to leave my bag. The clouds had settled in and I contemplated staying put for the day. I decided to embrace the trail the way it is today and headed out into foggy, cool, rainy day.
This was my last 10+ mile day. The trail is shrinking. The section I’m on now is the section that all the NOBOs start their treks. I can feel all the bootsteps that proceeded me.
I’m spending the night in a nice shelter in the upstairs loft. Lots of section hikers just starting short trips north. Looks like we have 1 more day of rain before I finish with some sun.
On gear news, my waist belt broke this afternoon, I’ll have to try to rig something tomorrow. I’ve only got 7.7 miles tomorrow, so I don’t need to get out early.
