We woke up to a beautiful sunrise! Quickly ate and packed, it is going to be a long day!


The sun was warm and we started climbing right away.


I knew the first bit was up-hill, but not this up… see the tiny barn in the background, that was where we slept and this is only a half hour of hiking.


Again we had the trail to ourselves and went up Little Hump Mountain (5,459 ft) through a Bradley Gap and then up Hump Mountain.




a break on some large rocks….


and up….


near melt down (how much more up can there be?) This was about 2 hours of climbing since we left camp.


But once over the top, we headed back into the woods, out of the wind and enjoyed the mostly downhill hike back to the truck.

I was surprised when un-packing, we used every thing we brought (except a couple items in the first aid kit) and finished with only one Clif Bar and a little trail mix! I packed perfectly!
