A Walk through the Clouds

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.
