Mile 1,703.9 Elevation 2,162.0 feet Miles Hiked 3.9
It rained all night in the shelter and was still raining in the morning. I was hoping for a short break in the rain to hike out and get to the Inn At Long Trail. After eating breakfast, I got my chance when the rain stopped and radar showed a small window with no rain. I left the shelter at 9:15 AM.
The trail was down and then an elevation gain of 600 feet. Just as I finished the 600 foot climb, it began to rain. I was still a couple of miles from the inn, so I quickened my pace. I arrived at the Inn just after 11:30 AM.
There was only one room available if I would room with a young woman. It was okay with me and okay with her, so I took the room. A lot of other hikers were there including Jelly, Riz, Swish and Wild. It will be a crazy time tonight. Right away, though, a shower and laundry was the first priority.
