Ascent Trip Report

DAY #12 ------TRAIL ANGEL, ALASKA BOUND -------

Had a long chat with AT maintenance worker, just south of Burningtown gap. He was building water bars across the T. His dream is to one day move, and LIVE IN ALASKA. He had a cooler full of cokes, for thru hikers, we both had one during our chat. A "trail angel".
Went up to Siler Bald summit via the .2 mile side trail to the left.

Quiet T day, met 6 hikers, my right knee still sore.
