Roan mountain! Holy cow. Breath taking and dangerous. Thick ice covered the path, and we both fell. I love the forest that covers it, I took nice photos with the other camera. Dense forest with pockets of snow covered bright patches in the sun. Then the roan balds.. oh my. One of my favorite places in the world. As beautiful as I remember. Joe and I went up there together last year and I still have not seen a more beautiful spot on the AT. So cool to look back and be able to see everything you just hiked over. Covered 20.9 miles all the way to doll flats. Crossed over the NC border for bed and there is no going back until after Maine. I’m sad but also feel as though passing NC was an important step psychologically for me getting this hike done. We’re not home anymore.
Minor pains today… everywhere. So I am taking aleve before I fall asleep.
Damascus in.. 4 days? Maybe? Crossing 400 miles tomorrow. Gettin’ it done.
Who am I ?
You guessed it!
