Arriving at Fontana Dam

As I entered the Fontana Dam area I could see Fontana Lake and Fontana Marina off in the distance. It made me wish I was on boat taking a nap. Towards the end I passed the Fontana Dam Shelter which is known by many hikers as the "Fontana Hilton".  It got that name since it has concrete floors, running water and showers nearby at the Visitors Center. I'm sure that is a treat for most hikers that are staying out on the trail.
