FLT Day 32: Hickory Hill leanto, 12 miles

An early start today, since I wasn't at a leanto last night. There were some nicer views today, but still the overhanging sense of impending rain. Fortunately given the early start and short day I got to the leanto earlier. There was a nice view out the front, and a large supply of wet firewood from building the leanto. No water supply at the leanto, and the recommendation was to go to the campsite, roughly .7 miles away. Instead I was able to hunt around the area and found some runoff trickles from all the rain.

In the afternoon the rain set in again, and this time it was accompanied by hail as well. Definitely a good day to be in a leanto rather than a tent.
