Day 5: Deep Gap Shelter to Muskrat Creek Shelter (15.1 miles)
Updated: May 10, 2019
May 17, 2004 - It rained for the 5th straight day, yes I’ve been on the trail 5 days. Today was a good day of hiking and got in 15.1 miles. I’ve left GA and now I’m in North Carolina. As soon as I crossed state lines it got very hard for 3 miles until I got to the shelter. I’m staying at Muskrat shelter with Dan and Paul again. Dan said that the next 20 miles are very easy so I’ll probably do another 20 tomorrow. Tomorrow I should get to see some great views on top of Standing Indian Mt. (Elev. 5498) and Albert Mt (Elev. 5220) which are bald tops.
