Day 15: Smoky Mountains through Davenport Gap

Posted in Josh's Journey
by The Backpackers Shop on March 31, 2016

Although the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was beautiful, the immense size of the park proved to be almost too much for Josh and Scuba. Between the fog and the rain, the weary hikers thought they might not ever escape its stubborn grasp. However, the clouds parted, the sun began to shine, and day 15 went from struggle to amazing success in less than 10 hours, thanks to some trail angels, "Lumpy" at the Standing Bear Hostel, and a fun night with other great hikers.
