No shelter, just our tent. Fearsome winds blowing throughout the night.
Wake up to find that red squirrels have eaten holes in our packs and cute little mice have shit inside the tent.
Hike AT over Myron Avery Peak and camp at Avery Memorial Lean-to. As we arrive at the shelter, a couple is leaving. They are from Cotesville. Pennsylvania!
After dinner we get to chatting with two more hikers, also staying the night. We talk about the Grateful Dead, writer Richard Brautigan and the New Physics.
