Woke up to a cool foggy morning on top of Roan Mtn.
Some great view from the Balds on Little Hump Mtn.
The red barn has been converted into an AT shelter. What a spectacular setting!
We’ve been crossing back and forth between NC and Tenn since we got to the Smokies. Now we say goodbye to NC.
This is Mountain Man. He started a southbound thru hike last August and left the trail in January and restarted mid March. He’s in the home stretch now. .
Even though we had a big 22 mile day planned we still managed time to hitch a ride 5 miles into town for Milkshakes et al.
AT hikers destination of choice.
This was my ride back (Mom was driving).
Jones Falls about a mile before camp.
Wound up doing 23 miles today with some minor side trips and detours. Felt surprisingly OK at the end of the day, though definitely ready to stop…at 7:45. It’s almost 10pm and I can barely keep my eyes open.
