A-10 is Thunder

Tuesday, May 16th
Rausch Gap Shelter (1176)

A good day, mildly hot. 

Two days ago was hearing thunder but the sky was totally clear. Couldn't figure it out. Solved the mystery today as two A-10  Warthogs circled around and eventually did test firing at a range a few miles away. Very loud, even from a distance. 

Sorry Mom (Arline), first snake of the season

Lunch at a random spot. Saw one day hiker, and the Australian hikers. Otherwise, no one. The big thru hiker bubble is weeks behind. 

Made the shelter around 4 PM, taking time today. With power low on phone, don't listen to audiobook or music. Do get text from Deb when I check that package is on its way. 

Shelter is nice, still here alone at 7:30. Unusual in that it has spring fed spout right next to it, so no walking around to get water. Another small fire for Mr. Bear.
