Day 5 – Low Gap to Tray Mountain shelter

Wow, what a day today! 5200 feet of climbing with my left knee bothering me most of the day. I found the climbs up Rocky Mountain and Tray Mountain challenging. The last climb took quite a while. We had another Trail Magic at Unicoi Gap. Had a bowl of chili and some drinks – much welcomed. The view from the top of Tray Mountain was beautiful, as was the view from the campsite. Had a hearty dinner and then set up the tent on the ridge. It was windy, but got a good night’s sleep. Stayed up to watch the night sky. Was surprised at how close the town lights were to us.
