Bearface hut

Short day today got to Lewis mountain camp ground by noonish and got a nice lunch similar to yesterday. Hung out for a while doing laundry and showering. Lego’s sister was coming around 3 with trail magic so he volunteered to hike the .8 to the shelter and back to set up our sleep stuff to reserve our spots. She came with a whole roast chicken, tortillas, tomatoes, avocado, cheese, rice, beans, beer, and all sorts of other goodies. The people in the cabin next to where we were hanging out came by and told us they had extra meat, which needed to get eaten and would we like it. We accepted of course and they cooked up 6 burgers, 4 pork chops, and 2 pork tenderloins. We ate the burgers and took the rest for tomorrow.

Last .8 to the shelter was easy and gorgeous, 6-7pm is my favorite time to hike.


Byrd’s nest hut #3

Today was really easy for me and the day just flew by. With over 2 hours in breaks, including one at skyland for some delicious blackberry ice cream. Ran into a few hikers I hadn’t seen for a while and realized the shelter was going to be quite full so headed out and kept up a good pace to get my spot in the shelter.

Dinner tonight was Asian bowl noodle with pork tenderloin. Sierra had a pork chop.



  1. Sounds like a well fed day or two!
    Even Sierra gets a pork chop!
    There are 4 Byrds nest shelters, which one are you in tonight?

    • #3, the others are emergency day use only.
