Fontana Dam December 03, 2015

Cold crispy morning.  The grass crunched every step.  Dozen miles later, I came to Fontana Dam.  As I poked my head over the edge, it looked a lot bigger than I anticipated.  Swung into the bathroom to wash a pair of socks and to dry them off.  Met an older guy going north bound.  I told him, “Buddy you’re going the wrong way.”  He def wasn’t thru hiking, so I wasn’t quite sure what he was doing.  Had a solid climb back to the top.  Had to keep hopping across streams, tons and tons of water everywhere.  Came down to a neat smaller shelter for only six hikers.  Made it to Sassafras Gap Shelter and called it a night.
