Thinking we had a break in the weather to make more mileage we left Laurel shelter only to be hit by a deluge. We set up camp somewhere between the AT and the side trail for Camp Creek Bald. I visited the creepy summit, full of ruins and buzzing radio towers, between storms. Confirming from the summit that more weather was on its way, we hunkered down that night in our tents to "enjoy" some tremendous downpours.
Hiked up via the Hickey Fork (nice waterfall), White Oak, and Appalachian Trails.
