Julia’s 2019 AT Vlog #4 – Muskrat Creek to Wesser Bald

In this trail update, we cross the 100-mile mark before enjoying snacks and soda with some trail angels. We set out for 11 miles initially, but decided to push to 16 miles and hitch a ride to our Franklin hostel.

I invest in a new base outfit (a word for the wise—shorts and a tank top won’t fly in March on the AT), learn a lot about shoes, and enjoy some pancakes and bacon at a local Baptist church.

Back on the trail, we encounter snow, fog-filled views, and a freaky cabin. Great news though—I finally solved the why-is-my-face-so-swollen-after-really-cold-nights mystery. Watch the full video to see the answer to my puffy-faced problems.
