Day 52 – Wed 4/11/18

Day 52 Went from Fontana Dam Shelter to Mollies Ridge Shelter – 11.8 miles.

Today started with a nice meltdown about 2 miles in! Haha. But for real. I packed out WAY too much food, so I stopped in the middle of the trail and set out my food and did some on trail Trail Magic. Ain’t even sorry about it! I gave a lot of my food out, and ate half a pound in Nutri Grain bars. I felt so much better after that. Moral of the story, DON’T PACK TOO MUCH FOOD!

It really didn’t help that it was all uphill too…

I started getting some great views though and I went up to Shuckstack! It was so high! It was scary climbing up the tower!

Towards the end of today’s hike, I got to walk through sections of little white wildflowers in lightly tree-d meadows. It made it look almost like snow!

Thanks for joining me on Expedition Elizabeth!
