Write Up:

Fun day in the Tray Mountain Wilderness! Small, but mighty group of for AOC hikers started the day on the Appalachian Trail at Unicoi Gap, finishing up 8 hours later at Dicks Creek Gap. After two tough ascents of Rocky Mountain and Tray, we enjoyed our well earned lunch at the AOC overlook. Weather was preventing most good views, but it had the benefit of lower temps it was a mostly dry day. A long, slow descent out of Tray eventually led to the Swag of he Blue Ridge, and another tough ascent out of Addis Gap to Kelly Knob. Thankfully, the clouds cleared just long enough to afford some nice views from the vista near Powell mountain, before the long descent down to our cars, and just as the rain started.
