Day 7, Rod Hollow Shelter

2 good days of hiking, 15 miles yesterday and 13 miles today. Clear skies and temperature in the 80’s. Much of the trail is not pretty. With all the rain, many paths are pure mud, and you try to jump from rock to rock… On the other hand, we get some gorgeous vistas!

The next 13 miles are lovingly called the “roller coaster”.  This is a series of about 20 ups and downs, with no respite. I will do the first 10 miles tomorrow, and stop at the Bear’s Den hostel, famous on the trail.

Today’s shelter is pretty standard, room for 8 or so. I’m very comfortable in my hammock.
