Day 48 went from Cheoah Bald to Stecoah Gap where I stayed at Cabin in the Woods for the night – 5.5 miles.
It was very cold today, and only supposed to get colder. The low for the night was around 24 and it was rainy and damp. So, I decided to get a cabin for the night.
On the way down to Stecoah Gap, I took a massive fall on a boulder field. I really thought my hike may be over. I was on the edge of the boulder field and I was looking straight down the mountain, I thought my momentum was going to push me over the edge and I’d be tumbling head first straight down a steep mountain. Thankfully, by the grace of God, my trekking pole stopped me and didn’t even snap! It was such a scary moment.
I was so ready to be done after that!
Once I got to Stecoah, I knew I needed to look for some other hikers to split the cost of the cabin with me and luck for me two guys were also wanting to get out of the cold for the night, so we stayed together.
They were nice guys, I just can’t remember their names right now.
Thanks for joining me on Expedition Elizabeth!
