Walnut Mountain Shelter

Date: March 31, 2010
Destination: Walnut Mountain Shelter
Sleeping location: Tent
Daily miles: 4.9

Woke up this morning with a thick frost on the tent. It was a cold one last night.

Got off to a late start this morning, but that was according to plan. The next shelter was just under 5 miles away so I knew it would be a short day. I took my time and enjoyed the journey today.

Once the sun came up and defrosted everything the day was perfect. Not too warm or cold, and the spring sun shone in a cloudless sky. Wonderful day to be in the woods.

I'm camped on a small ridge above the shelter tonight. I tried to position the tent so it'll catch the earliest rays of the morning sun, just in case it's frigid again this evening.
