Day 36 roan high knob shelter

Miles hiked 16.8
Total miles 375.3

We had a big climb today. It was up hill most of the day. The last part of the day was a 2212 foot climb to the top of roan mountain at 6212 feet. We are staying the night at roan high knob shelter, at 6194 feet it is the highest shelter on the AT. I have to thank buckeye kornelious for finding my fleece I dropped at the bottom of roan mountain and carrying it all the way up the mountain and to the shelter for my. That is real trail magic.    Kaboose
