Springer Mountain Brass Plaque
M=0.0; C=0.0; E=3782 ft
My conventions here: M=Miles walked since the day before, C=Cumulative miles into the hike, E=Elevation/Altitude, J: Journal Entry.
I may have hiked over 8 miles today, but they don't count. The last mile was the toughest from Black Mountain Shelter to the actual start of the A.T. Two brass plaques embedded in the rock and the first white blaze await hikers. I've finally arrived at the start of the journey.
Mist had been teasing JettButt, Sherbear and me since Black Mountain. It didn't look like it was going to let up this evening.
