Springer to Hightower Gap (slept at Hawk Mtn shelter)

Got some trail therapy yesterday and knocked out from Springer to Hightower Gap. We saw the Stover Creek Shelter, Three Forks, Long acreek Falls and Hickory Flats Cemetery and spent the night at the Hawk Mountain shelter. Ended up meeting up with a couple of folks at the shelter including a guy named Reboot who was finishing his thru hike today (last bit was Hawk Mountain to Springer). Very cool conversation and weather couldn't have been better.

I always appreciate these trip reports! You're getting after it this year, thanks for the inspiration and stoke!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Thanks @nathanu !  Until my doctor releases me back into the wild, I am living my hiking life vicariously through you!  😁
