--> Knot Maul Branch Shelter, 19.1 miles
I didn't see any bears last night despite all the sign warning of bear activity. This morning started with a 1600' climb up to a view-less ridge. I walked along to Chestnut Knob, which had a few views and a shelter on top. The shelters on top of mountains always seem to be nice. There was an open field on the ridge on the way down. It was quite nice. There were then a few more smaller mountains to go over before the shelter here. The water wasn't too far away which was nice. Tomorrow doesn't look like it will be too bad, and my pack will be lighter with less food, so it should be good. I'll also go by the 75% mark.
