4/11 Gooch Mountain Shelter (13)

April 11, 2013 at 12:31 pm

We spent the day trying to outrun a thunderstorm that crept into camp late.  We met a lit of thru hikers on the way who were just as anxious as us to beat the ominous clouds to camp. When we got there the shelter was packed with three dozen or so hikers of all ages and personalities. We started a good fire going and waited for the thunder. The thunder took it’s time coming to the party but one hiker managed to kick off the festivities early when he threw an old discarded brown bag on the fire and we all found out it contained fire crackers.  The night was a soggy one but we survived it in good company.
