Day 23 - April 23
Eggs in nest at Trail register(2 pics) - Red buds blooming - Me at Audie Murphy Memorial - Audie Murphy Memorial
Day 23 Journal Entry: Highlight of the day was"Trail Magic". 1 & 1/2 miles after I left the Niday Shelter there it was. I had 2 miniature 3 Musketeers and a Sierra Mist. What a lift for the spirits. I only hiked 10.1 miles, it was sunny and 72 deg. so it made for a good day. At the halfway mark there was a memorial to Audie Murphy. Murphy was the most decorated US serviceman of WW II, the highest honor being the Medal of Honor. He was killed in 1971 when the plane he was flying in hit the mountain near the memorial. Tonight Sunny and I are the only two in the Pickle Branch Shelter. Tomorrow to Catawba for the Homeplace Restaurant for the buffet. Goodnight.
