we were happy to have some water purification equipment with us to top off before the climb up north carter.
great day. two very different extremes as it was hot early and we struggled not to overheat and by the time we were in the wildcats we were just trying to stay warm enough in the cold winds and rain. a fair amount of thunder rumbling around in the afternoon and one startling lightning strike and thunderclap a bit to close for comfort coming off of carter dome. nice running into some familiar faces along the way. thanks to cynthia for another nice long hike.
