Appalachian Trail, 2012, Day 8, Lambert Meadow Shelter

7/6, 8.4 miles today

(This day is missing from by handwritten blog so it has been recreated from memory)

We slept well last night and got an early start. With the sun rising we wanted to be sure to get to McAfee Knob before any rain moved it. We got there about 9. What a great place to get views and take lots of photos! Beside the famous “out over the edge” cliff, there are also cliffs around the back side so you can get a 270° range of views. What a great place but after 30 or so minutes, we had to move on.

We took a break (like we do a most shelters) at Campbell shelter and moseyed on to Tinker Cliffs. Tinker Cliffs is about 180° from McAfee and in fact if you look hard you can see one from the other. There are nice views there as the trial follows the cliff edge for a ¼ mile or so.

Again, it was HOT today. Next year I’ll have to bring more electrolyte based powder mix to help.
