Day 4 – Cowrock Mtn to Blue Mtn

Had a very rainy night and morning. The tarp dripped a little during the downpour, which was annoying but not a big deal. I’ll have to reseal the seams when I can get some silicone sealant. The hike today was mostly off and on rain and mist…

For the most part the hike was a little easier today with no major climbs. We mostly hiked along the side of some fairly steep mountains and ridges.


We ended up hiking about 14.5 miles and called it a day. Tomorrow looks tougher with two pretty big climbs early on with Rocky Mountain and Tray Mountain, which are both close to Blood Mountain in elevation between 4000-4500 feet.

    We miss you and and I for one am a little envious. I hope you can get that silicone soon! Were you able to dry out? The ascent loooks a little intimidating. We have been tracking from the book you sent and higlighting your end of day camping locations. It loooks like you are still ahead of schedule. Let us know if we need to send the next package earler. This blog rocks! Thanks so much for keeping us posted and we really enjoy the pics. We are just about to have our Easter dinner and willl certainly mention both of you in our Easter prayers. It is just glorious areoind here weather-wise, although there is a frost warning for tonite. Happy Easter to both of you!! Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen! Voistynu Voskres! Khrystos Voskres!
