At the Dancing Bear cabin where we will stay tonight, at Misty Mountain Resort, as well as next Friday and Saturday night. The 🐻 motif is prominent.
Early this afternoon we are going to hike up Brassbald Mountain. That post for later.
Tommorow morning we start the real hike. We are taking a shuttle from here to Amicalola State Park. An hour and 20 minute ride. Then we hike back for six days, and get get picked up at Neels Gap which is a 15 minute drive from here.
So, we will be on the trail for six days. Final gear check today.
Some rain expected this week. We are carrying pack covers, ponchos, and Gossamer Gear ultralight trekking umbrellas. No metal parts. Also wearing stuff that dries quick – no cotton.
