Day 1 Berryman to Almost Hazel Creek. 12.5 miles
Me "Skygzr", Eric "Hoot", Bob "Kerflop"
The leafs on the ground made for very loud walking, there would be no chance of animal sitting with as much noise as the leaf litter was making.
The shadows are even longer this weekend even during the day as we walk through the woods
We walked at a leisurely pace stopping for rests and scenary breaks and arrvived at Snapps Branch in the mid afternoon to get water.
Hazel Creek was about another 1 to 1 1/2 further on and was our original stopping point for the day, but after getting water, we climbed the trail to the ridge line and found a lovely spot to camp where we would catch the last light of the day and the first light in the morning
my hammock set up for the evening.
the evening light faded quickly and made for a very nice view from my hammock, overlooking Bob and Eric's set ups
A stealth fire to keep us warm in the chilly evening air and watching the last light fade from the day.
A very nice first day on the trail.
