Clingmans dome

Highest elevation on the entire A.T. 6643 ft. I smell like 10,000 feet. The parking lot scene is trail magic, food for hikers brought to us by trail Angeles. Thanks for the food and the ride into town Godspeed.

When you gotta go

If you think the privy on top of Albert Mt. hasn't been used in a long time, then you don't know me very well. I am afraid of hights

I woke up warm and comfortable even though there was a terrible storm last night. I have had the same dream for three nights, I am in a grocery store and the only item in my cart is one pound of butter. I think I know why I can't stay warm. I have not incorporated enough fat into my diet. At 5,000+ elevation in the thin cold mountain air, butter is more valuable than gold!

Cold wet rainy

The sweaters I hung to dry in the shelter were more wet this morning. I've been stopping every 10 minutes in order to try to post but the signal has been sketchy at best. can easily take me 20 minutes just to post. I must keep moving in order to stay warm
