Hike: Neel’s Gap (Neel Gap?) – Southern AT – near Dahlonega, GA
Weather: cool, sunny, mid 60s
Hikers: Ian, Court, Isaac, MB, Baby Grace
Length: 1 mile
The main highlight here was actually the Mountain Crossings Store which is where a lot of thru-hikers re-supply as well as drop gear they’ve realized they don’t need once they’ve been on the trail for a couple days. We bought several pieces of gear and AT paraphernalia and I could have stayed in that store all day.
After the store we hiked just a bit up the AT heading northbound and then needed to get back because Isaac and MB’s new baby Grace was ready for nap. She went on her first official hike though! Not bad to start on the AT. Got some pretty pics even on a short hike.
