Starting Location: Compton Gap Trail
Destination: Jim and Molly Denton Shelter
Total Miles: 968.7
Only doing a few miles today to help rest my shin and feet, so I slept in a little bit and resupplied in town before hitting the trail around 1pm. The air mattress in the bunkroom was so comfortable last night. I’d been having some trouble sleeping at the shelters recently (I think it’s time for a new Z-rest), and it was nice to finally sleep so well.
A bit of overgrown and boring trail this afternoon, but reunited with Footloose, Tortoise, Lovebug, and Dead Man Walking at this nice shelter that has a big deck and Adirondack bench out front. Cooked some dinner, made use of the simple shower (cold, but nice!) to wash my face and hair, and sat around enjoying Gretchie’s brownies with the others (thanks Big Sis—they’re delicious!). Picking up the miles again tomorrow, so time for bed.
