Chaunce’s AT Vlog #02: Springer to Neel Gap

We made it past the Approach Trail to officially start the AT at Springer Mountain. By 3:30 p.m., we’re a half mile from our original campsite, but decide to push on an extra 0.7 miles where a group of campers have a fire going (~warmth~).

But alas, I woke up quite chilly and started the day to avoid being colder, complete with a breakfast of frozen muffins. Fast forward to minute seven to see my best self!

Watch the full video to see panoramic views, the trail angel group I ran into, and my night-time descent into Neel Gap.
