Day 36: Hard Climb in the heat

Rate this Entry
Finally setting off from the Happy Gnomad today, unfortunately today is mostly up hill. I finally got my wish and the cold is gone. It suppose to get up in the 80s today. ☀️ Well with the heat comes snakes. Saw my first copperhead today. It was right in the middle of the trail. Luckily I saw it before I stepped on it and it quickly moved on. Today’s climb was no joke. Still kept good time, but it was hard. Made sure to stay hydrated and kept applying the sunscreen. Made it Spring Mountain Shelter after 4pm. I will definitely take the heat over the extreme cold, for now.
