Jim & Molly Denton Shelter 1Oct05 Day 107
Today was relatively easy mostly because there were few rocks on the trail. I did have trouble with water. This morning, the water from the shelter spring was cloudy and smelled terrible. I treated some of it but it still smelled bad to the point where I didn't want to drink it. I decided to hold out until the frist stream but it smelled too. In the end I had to wait until the first spring which was 7 miles away. Needless to say, I was quite thirsty when I got there.
This shelter is quite nice. Most of the shelters lately have been quite nice. There are also 4 other gals staying here. Very different being surrounded by women when most of the people on the trail are guys.
Tomorrow I enter the Shenandoah National Park. The shelters are spaced at odd distances apart meaning either doing 15 miles or 25 miles.
