Entering the Great Smoky Mnts
Day 15. California Joe & I braved the upcoming storm that called for all day rains, sustained winds of 30 miles per hour with gusts up to 60 miles & possibility of snow in the mnts. We are crazy! Well the rains came and we got soaked.
We stayed in the Russel Field Shelter with Starbucks & Tom and his 2 kids, Cooper & Chandler. We did get a fire a going which allowed us to get all of our stuff dry! Praise God.
We also passed the 2000 mile mark We are officially 1998.8 miles away from Katahdin. Yeah.
Peppermint oil worked again Scott! Unreal.
In the morning everything was white with snow and freezing fog! Very cool.
