Back on the Appalachian Trail - At least for the weekend.


 
I was able to get back to North Georgia and hike a section of the Appalachian Trail from Unicoi Gap to Neel's Gap.  The fog had frozen to the trees, a condition called Hard Rime or Hoar Frost, and made for some really incredible views.  We hiked about 7 miles on Friday including a climb up Blue Mountain from Unicoi Gap.  We thought we had gone 8 miles and setup camp at what turned up to be a mile short of the Gap we thought we were at.
