Day 22 Gatlinburg. Zero day. Total miles: 206.8.
Words of the day: snow, cold, luck.
We were lucky. Yesterday, we worked hard to get to Gatlinburg, for resupply, a half day off, and a good night’s sleep at the Grand Prize Prix Motel.
The weather turned, and rain became snow. 2 wet and cold hikers were found and saved on Clingman’s Dome. We stayed here an extra night as all who could came down from the mountain and temperature about 10 degrees… 6 inches of snow fell this afternoon.
Tomorrow: 60 and clear, but we don’t know if the park road will be closed…
Let’s add Flexible to the word list!
