Stecoah Gap, NC 14 miles
Total mileage 2039.3
Wow, did I sleep good last night on a queen size bed with 4 fluffy pillows! This was my view before going to bed last night.
I had a good day. I like the shorter miles. It’s much easier on the body. I kept my thoughts positive trying not to think about my feet.
The weather was amazing for hiking. It was cool and sunny. The last three days have been like this. Hopefully it will continue.
There weren’t to many exciting parts of the trail. There was an awesome view of Fontana lake but that was it. There were more up and downs than I thought there would be and a steep downhill down Jacob’s ladder. My knees have started to bother me some like they did up north with the steeper terrian. I am down to 150.4 miles to go the end is in sight.
I am staying at Stecoah Wolf Creek Hostel run by Lonnie. All the rooms are private and I have a full size bed. This is a treat.
Today I am thankful for the beauty of the day.
