Day 11 (Dan’s Pulpit to Bake Oven Knob Shelter)

The profile for today’s hike looked pretty easy. I expected to get in 22 miles. Instead, it was the hardest 15 miles I’ve done on the AT yet.

Most of the miles went through boulder fields and some areas, like Knife Edge, required using your hands to climb up and over large boulders. I’ll post some pictures but I know they won’t do it justice. Some south bound hikers told me to expect more of the same tomorrow.

Tenting at a shelter tonight for the first time. Section hiker Shadow is here as well.
