Steep climb up from Unicoi; spent the night at the Blue Mountain Shelter.
The prior day was sunny and beautiful, but this day "dawned" quite misty and cool. If there are views available from Blue Mountain, we sure did not enjoy them as we were socked in by clouds! Later in the day, nasty weather moved in and brought first pounding rain and thunder/lightning, then a cold-front carrying record-cold overnight lows. Yeesh.
