Julie’s Appalachian Trail Vlog #4: Woody Gap to Hiawassee, GA

We woke up to a beautiful view in Woody Gap, headed up Blood Mountain, and descended to Neel Gap (beer, hot dogs, etc.). After resupplying our heating up some s’mores, we set out for the trail and pitched camp at Wolf Laurel Top.

On day three, we set out to night-hike to avoid cold rain in the afternoon. The afternoon was very up and down elevation-wise and windy. I picked up some rain and wind-proof mittens by Outdoor Research yesterday—totally worth my $30. Watch the full video to see what transpired later that afternoon.

We met some folks on the morning of day four and shared some fuel to help them defrost their frozen gear. We hitched into town to stock up on some more food before spending a night in a Hiawassee hotel.
