Day 1 - Saunders Shelter

Just got a call from Dad. He's at Saunders Shelter watching the sun set after 9 miles on the trail. He dodged the rain and said the weather was just about perfect at a steady 60 degrees.

1,705 miles to Baxter Peak in Katahdin, ME.

Journal Entry Day One: Don and Lois Gerhardt brought me to Damascus, VA and walked about a mile with me. Excellent day to start a hike with the temperature at 60 deg. and overcast and no rain. Hiked 9.3 miles to the Saunders Shelter. Beautiful night, quarter moon and lots of stars.
