On The AT Day 4

Last night was darn cold in the shelter at Hawk Mountain. Very little sleep.

Hiked from Hawk Mountain shelter to Gouch Mountain shelter. Hiked with Roy and Mai Mai again. We ended up going down the wrong trail for about a half mile uphill. Came back down and found the trail and headed out. A nice hike lots of up hills. Roy had to stop and told us to continue.

We hiked over Sassafras Mountain. This might have actually been harder to hike up than the approach trail.
