Day 5 (Mar. 26th) – 7.4 miles. Lance Creek Campsites to Neel’s Gap (Blood Mountain Cabins). Rained all night last night, but stopped in time for us to pack up this morning. Misty and foggy all day. Blood Mountain kicked my butt today! My legs were very exhausted going up, coming down though steep and boulders galore was better. Greg did great though he says very challenging too. If anyone needs a challenge, this is it! We are happy to be living our dream. At cabins tonight with another couple and we are choking down on pizza now. Soooo yum!!
