Day 42 – mile 584 to Kimberling Creek

We hit the trail a little before 8am to sunny skies. The weather threatened all day, but we only got a little rumble or two and some sprinkles in the late morning. We did some road walking (the trail took us that way) and crossed over I-77 early on.


Mountain pass on I-77

We had some minimal views later.

Most of the day was pretty easy and nondescript hiking. We ended up camping by this creek after about 22.5 miles. There is a small grocery store about 1/2 mile away that we hiked down to and grabbed some extra snacks and soda. Well worth an extra mile of non – trail hiking! Tomorrow we are planning to hike about 15 miles or so to a place called the Woods Hole Hostel, which has a really good reputation.
