Day 76: Bromley Shelter to Big Branch Shelter (14.5 miles)

Updated: May 10, 2019

July 27, 2004 - I woke up to the sound of rain so instead of an early start I went back to sleep. Once I saw it wasn’t going to stop I got going. Had to hike up Bromley Mt in the thickest mud you can imagine. Then near the top of the trail you get onto a ski trail (Bromley is a ski mt in the winter). At the top there was ski lift. Then headed down the mountain while it was still raining. I was moving so slow because of the mud and my feet were now soaked. I made it 8 miles until I got to the next shelter and hung around for 4 hours because I didn’t want to go back into the cold rain. Then around 4 pm it began to stop so I got going. Went 6.5 miles to the next shelter to get water and hoped to go another 3 but some SOBO said the next shelter was full so I’m staying here for tonight. Just 14.5 miles today, going to have to make up for that tomorrow.
