Day 3- The Divide!

Today we hiked up to the Eastern Continental Divide at 3,000 feet- the highest we’ve been on the AT yet! The views up at the top were phenomenal as we ridge walked for half the day. The rock features were incredible. It was really windy, but sunny and pleasant in the sun. 

Coming off the Ridge was steep and slow, but pastures greeted us along with the largest oak on the AT in the south- the Keffer Oak. 

We ascended from Route 42 up to Laurel Creek shelter for a 23 degree night! Chilly, but all 3 of us were super cozy in our tent and Ellie stayed toasty in her Patagonia Down Bunting! 12.5 miles all in a days work!
