Final days in Tennessee and North Carolina 

The AT follows the border of TN and NC for quite a ways. I’m nearing the end of that section. I hiked 15 miles today and passed over a tall peak called Roan Mountain (elevation over 6000 feet). The weather was beautiful. Here’s some of what I saw

    I think you are still having fun, aren’t you? Roan Mountain is a special place…

      The Roan Highlands were breathtaking and the weather was perfect. I pitched my tent atop yellow mountain (a bald) last night and had the most spectacular 360 view all to myself – that did involve hauling my pack and 3 liters of water up a very steep incline for 2 miles at the end of a 15 mile day, but I’ll never forget that spot!!

    It’s beautiful, Kevin. Before you invited us to follow your blog I didn’t even know the AT existed. Now I’m learning through your posts there are others. What a wonderful experience it must be to hike one of these trails. Thank you for sharing it with us.
