I got moving early this morning. I’m excited because my sister Laura will be joining me on the trail this evening. This means I have to make it to Carvers Gap.

There was some rain but luckily no thunderstorms. I met a really nice young woman, Brave, who was hiking north bound. I wish we would have been hiking the same direction. I really enjoyed meeting her and visiting for a few minutes. The morning was mostly rolling hills but the afternoon had three good climbs including an 8 mile 2500 ft elevation climb up Hump Mountain. The views reminded me of some of the views in the north east. Then the clouds and rain moved in so I didn’t get to enjoy the views from Roan Mountain.

I got to Carver Gap just about the same time Laura arrived. It was getting late so we camped near the gap. So awesome to see her. It was raining so we got in our tents and talked through the walls until way past hiker midnight. 🙂

What is hiker midnight?
