Day 17 – Wed 3/7/18

Day 17 went from Unicoi Gap to Cheese Factory Site – 3.7 miles.

When we got to the trailhead, it was freezing! This hike was an intense 1,000 ft ascent over 1 mile, then a 1,000 ft descent over 1 mile.

In the ascent, we passed a nice stream where we took a break. Vapor was all about a photo shoot.

We had an awesome view for lunch at Rocky Mountain.

We camped tonight at the Cheese Factory Site. I believe it got down to 18 degrees. It was pretty frigid.

Thanks for joining me on Expedition Elizabeth!
