Ascent Trip Report

AT DAY #4

Dry Trail inspite of last nights rain. Blood Mountain reminded me of the ADK in NY state (rocks & roots), not like the past 3 days.... tough descent.
Neels gap, Walasi-Yi Center is a real nice place, the Trail goes right thru the building. It has a good outfitter store and snacks for short term resupply.
After hanging aroung for a while, I decided to stay the night in their Hostel, for a real short day. Pizza lunch and 2 hamburger dinner, washed clothes, made a number of phone calls to the family.
