We start from the Wolverton parking lot mid-morning on a 4.2 mi hike that brings us to the amazing vista at Panther Gap and finish at Mehrten Meadow where we camp for the night. About 1/4 of the way in we see a deer and about 1/2 into the hike we encounter a black bear (our 1st of 3 that we eventually see over the 3 days)

Not a lot of mosquitoes during our hike (July 4 weekend)
