Day 6: Another One Bites the Dust

4/26: mile 70.7 - 95.3
Miles: 24.6

It was a perfect warm morning that quickly got a little hot. But the climbing was a nice gentle grade and it was so very green. Plus 8 or so miles in we officially finished Georgia and crossed into North Carolina. Woohoo first state!

But seriously California took 3 months and this one was less than a week? These east coast states are tiny! I think this officially means only 13 states to go.

And then honestly a whole lot of really emotional stuff happened that I may go into greater detail about at some other point when I have a little more perspective. Needless to say hiking with partners is hard and I will shortly be trying this adventure solo.

So yes there were views and more of the excessive signage that helps make the AT what it is. Which I love! I haven't gotten lost once yet, that certainly wasn't true on my last trail. Lost was a daily occurrence on the continental divide. But I had blinders on to details so enjoy some photos.

I love rhododendron tunnels! How did I not know these were a thing?

  1. Didn't the Chunky Gal move out west and blaze that Slippery Hood trail?
