Hyatt Lake Campground to Brown Mountain Shelter. 20 miles, 1771 miles total.

There was a nice shelter here at Brown Mountain, and there were several hikers there cooking dinner. One of the entries in the journal stated that a bear likes to hang hout here, so after dinner, even though it was getting dark, I decided to hike on a mile or two, and I ended up camping just along the trail. I didn't see or hear any bears.

The wild huckleberries near the shelter were everywhere and very ripe! What a treat to have berries right along the trail!
