Camp at Indian Grave Gap
It was an excellent hike from Uncle Johnny's Hostel to Indian Grave Gap. We were supposed to stay at Curley Maple Gap Shelter; due to early arrival, we decided to move on and camp at Indian Grave Gap. Water source was down the road (TN 395) outside the curve--had to go over the steel protective barricade along the curve road. We had a fire last night and Sweetheart was concerned that the fire might spread. Eventually, her fears subsided because it rained a little bit and killed the fire. We planned to remain overnight at Cherry Gap Shelter the next day. (04:59:49)
