This is the view heading into Erwin TN. It was sleeting so it was a welcomed site to see the town. The hostile was full with hikers either sick or waiting out the storm so I got a ride into town and got a hotel. It turns out mudflap, railroad, critter, and murta are staying here as well. We can not get a good feel for how windy it is going to be tonight so I think we are staying an extra day. It looks like the mtns will end up with about 4" of snow but it will not last long.
