1/3 down

These next few photos will show you why my shorts have holes in them!

Yeah. Rock climbing.

The way down is much harder and some hikers are much braver than myself!

Made it into Troutville for their mini trail days fest. A local church had pancake breakfast, lunch and will do a big pasta dinner. They allow camping in the town park and we can take showers and do laundry across the street at the fire station.

Pancakes!!

Swear I’m going to gain weight on this hike! I’ve had quite a bit of trail magic and doing shorter days means I’m burning less calories, but still pigging out with the best of them.

Inside a shelter. My leg doesn't think so!

Big thunderstorms are brewing and I’m heading to the firestation. More on bears tomorrow….

  1. PANCAKES!!!! I love pancakes… And what a great treat and reward! Glad you made it in time for the festivities! I cannot possibly imagine you gaining weight on this journey, so enjoy every minute and every bite! Those rocks look treacherous… glad it’s only holes in your shorts that you have to worry about. Power on my friend… You’re an inspiration in my book.
