Day 15 Monday - Cable Gap Shelter
Mileage: 14 miles (156.0 total)
So I took the 14 mile route today instead of pressing 3 miles to the campsite past the shelter, just prior to Fontana Dam. The ups after Stecoah Gap were R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S! No switchbacks, just straight up on a 40 degree incline. Screw it, I just threw it in low gear and mushed up the trail. My right knee started complaining towards the end of the day. Oh well, "Stop your whining".
Left Cheoah Bald around 9, got into Cable Gap around 5:30 PM. Stopped in for lunch at Stecoah Gap. Now I'm sitting here talking to a cute girl (rarity out here) so I'm done with this writing boools***. Peace!
