Tuesday morning, May 6, is beautiful indeed! I spent the night last night in my tent at Locust Cove – mile 147.6 I really slept well – the best sleep on the trail so far.
My hope is to make it to Fontana Dam tomorrow. I plan to take a Nero (near zero) Day there. I near to get permit for the Smokies there and I need to resupply. My body is getting tired so a good day of rest will be welcomed.
Photo below shows some typical rocky trail. It is hard but fun at the same time. Makes the trail slow but even adds to the beauty.
I am loving this adventure so far! I’ve met some nice folk and avoid rattlers. Lots of sunshine and almost no rain.
