Blood Mountain was the site on an Indian war many generations ago. Last night I hike the summit with my full ruck. The views were amazing. The effort worth it.
I'm finding sleeping in shelters is a bit annoying with being open to the wind and snoorers. They also tend to be a bit dirty. I've slept in 3 so far. The benefits is the fellowship of the trail. I've learned more then a lot about the trail and where others be from.
I know I'm pushing a bit but it's worth it.
