Wow! What a storm over night. Lots of rain, wind, thunder and lightening. Great once again to be inside and dry.
Just heard at breakfast that a tornado took out a small community at the bottom of the hill we were on and 5 people died and 6 missing. We understand this was the same storm that hit Alabama, The trail maintainers we met today said it was the worst storm since 1974. Everyone on the trail was OK. Wild weather continues
Today's hike took us first up a 2 hour climb and then up Camp Creek Bald which was the hardest, longest rock climb since Albert mountain.
Again we hiked about 16 miles today. Despite all the bad weather overnight today was mostly great for hiking. Broke the 300 Mile mark today!
We did catch Silver Hiker at the shelter and he weathered the big storm last night in his tent.
It's getting close to hiker midnight so I'll close down for the night
