Day 41 went from Wayah Crest Picnic Area to Burningtown Gap – 8.8 miles.
This felt like a never-ending uphill! It also did not help that it was HOT!
These are some of the views on the way up.
These are pictures from Wayah Bald!
I really needed water, so I didn’t stay up on the bald for too long.
Burningtown Gap is supposedly haunted. Boss decided to let us know after we had already put up our tent for the night!
Burningtown Gap got its name from a massacre by fire of an entire settlement of freed slaves during the Reconstruction Era. Local folklore has it that for over 100 years people have reported hearing the sound of men, women, and children’s screaming on the mountain at night.
I did not hear anything, thank God!
Thanks for joining me on Expedition Elizabeth!
