We came to the Keffer Oak, the largest tree on the southern AT...pretty neat to see (and get a picture with, of course!). The clouds hung around and we got sprinkled on a bit but thankfully didn't get rained on when we crossed a rocky ridge where we had to walk on slabs of rocks on a cliffside...lots of slipping as everything was still wet but thankfully no falls for me...everyone else took a spill though! We stopped at Niday Shelter after a short 12.4-mile day, and it started raining shortly after...it's so nice to be inside in the rain! It's been raining off and on ever since...I really hope the sun comes out tomorrow!!
I went to get water during one of the breaks in the rain...the path was a steep downhill covered in mud. Again, lots of sliding, and I actually fell going around a switchback and left quite a skidmark! My left cheek was covered in mud and everyone had a pretty good laugh about it when they saw...guess I'm wearing dirty shorts tomorrow!
