Julia’s 2019 AT Vlog #2 – Week 1 part 1 – Springer Mountain to Unicoi Gap

We start the day with breakfast on Springer Mountain before running into some rain on Sassafras Mountain and finally pitching camp for the night.

On day two, we stop for lunch at Gooch Gap before passing into Chattahoochee National Forest starting at Woody Gap. The group enjoys panoramic views on top of Preaching Rock and ends up at Lance Creek for night.

We start a seven-mile trek to Neel Gap on day three, where the kind people of Mountain Crossing let us take a two-hour rest break on their retail floor. Day four, despite being damp and overall “meh” at the start, brought mild elevation and company at the shelter. The day definitely ended on a high note!
