4/19 Winding Stair Gap/Franklin

The trail held about one to two inches of water our whole way down, soaking our boots.

Reaching the gap, we were reunited with Sprouts, Probably Hopeless and Long Shot. Realizing no one would ever pick up hitchhikers in this state, we very luckily were picked up by Ron Haven’s shuttle and taken into town! For a change of pace, we also had ourselves delivered to Vito’s Pizza for some warm food and cold beer!

We’re dried out now, and glad that we didn’t push onto the next shelter now that we learned there is a freeze warning for the valley, never mind the mountains!

Also, a big thanks to Joe D. for putting up some captcha functionality on our blog so we’ll stop getting spammed!
