Day #2 — A long one..

I hiked 13.5 miles today; got caught up with my schedule. I kept seeing my park with your friend Greg And intern Megan.

I ended up hiking the last 2 miles in the dark with my headlamp on. I climbed and descended Thunderhead Mountain in the dark. I hiked through thick Rhododendrum’s in a dark tunnel. I did come upon a pair of shiny eyes looking back at me from the side of the trail; fortunately it was a bunny rabbit. 🐇

The miles up here in the Smokies are really tough. Ten miles a day is tough for me.
