4/13 Day 27

We hiked 18 miles to Mountaineer Falls Shelter. Our big hikes for the day were over Little Hump and Hump Mountain. We saw our first bear, one who had been hit by a car in US 19. We took a break at Jones Falls and hiked next to the Elk River. We stayed at Mountaineer Falls Shelter, a newer three-story shelter. Our highlight of the day was meeting a puppy that had followed a group of hikers 8 miles to the shelter. He was our guard dog for the night and our entertainment.
