Springer Fever - Final Day (Day 3)

Last night was just one of those perfect nights for sleeping in a tent in the middle of the woods. The tempature was a little brisk, but not overly cold. The sound of the stream was a soothing lulaby that made for a peaceful sleep.
I didn't start breaking down camp until 6:45, but was packed up with a full belly by 7:30 and heading down the trail.
The climb up to Blood Mountain was a haul. 5 miles of nothing but UP! No worries though...the views offered up by the clear skies were breathtaking and well worth the hard work. I sat at the top for a while eating a snack and taking in the scenery.
The climb down to Neel's Gap was pretty steep and took it's toll on my knees and feet. We arrived at the outfitters around 11:30, took some photos and headed 1/2 down the road to where our car was parked.
Another great trip!!!
Until next time......Happy Trails!!!
