Gunter Fork Trail
What can we say? The trail is beautiful. Wildflowers and streams galore with about 6 different crossings. We had lunch on a large rock in the middle of a creek facing Gunter Cascades and immersing ourselves in the negative ions. Just before our last crossing we came to a water slide that was quite impressive. Then suddenly the real climb began. The climb was draining and the rain did not help. It felt like the longest few miles EVER. Then I got us lost. A three mile boo boo. Finally got to Laurel Gap shelter just before dark, soaking wet, and cold.
