Standing Indian Shelter to Better Creek Gap
Todays Miles = 12.2 Total Miles = 84.2 Miles To Go = 2089.9
Yesterday, we got to Standing Indian Shelter and it was packed, so we tented it. It was a frigid freezing night. Woke up with snow on the ground. Oh my, my fingers and toes were so cold I couldn't even feel them. About 2 miles into our hike we ran into our hometown friends Julia and Mike. It was so great to see them. And on such a cold but beautiful day. We hiked with them until they reached the shelter they were camping at for the night. We went on a few more miles to Betty Creek Gap. Another cold snowy night. Many winter storm advisories and wind warnings. We look forward to tomorrow. Wallace Gap. It will be our first night off the trail. We will be able to get warm and dry out our stuff.
