Sunday May 26th
Overnight conditions weren’t bad. A little cold but not too bad. Early morning conditions were cold and rainy. We had been discussing our trip and what we wanted to get done so we decided to break camp in the sleet and rain. We decided to leave Mt Pisgah and head North.
We made it to Mt Mitchell for lunch. Thankfully the weather cleared and it offered beautiful views. Mt Mitchell is the highest point East of the Mississippi.
Our plan was to high tail it to Doughton Park where we could camp for the night. We made it around 4pm (about 160 miles). We headed out after picking a spot. We went into Sparta, NC. We fueled up the van then headed to “The Pines” restaurant for dinner after a local's recommendation. Our first dinner that wasnt made in camp since we left. We stocked up on groceries and headed back to the campground-ended up being 40 miles round trip. We plan on leaving out early in the AM. Chasity didn’t like the bathrooms here and I kept teasing her about Freddy occupying one of the stalls. They were clean but they lacked any kind of light.
