Back on the trail

I’ve returned to the Roan Mountain B&B and hope to hit the trail tomorrow – rested and fattened up. My brother Tim devised a diet for me to manage my trail hunger for the last few days. It’s a bit of a “front loaded” system called the 3-2-1 diet. You eat 3 breakfasts, two lunches, and one dinner – seemed to work quite well.

The trail is reportedly reopened so I’ll be curious to see the results of the fire.

While at the B&B I found a great flower book:


Helped me identify a couple recently photographed flowers:

 Shuttleworth’s Ginger:

And Bishop’s cap:


To infinity and beyond…

    Great to see you and hear all the stories from the trail. Good luck getting your groove back, and see you in a few weeks.

    Welcome back, Kev! Kudos to Tim for helping you satisfy your trail hunger! We are looking forward to this leg of the journey!

    Glad your back safe and sound. Nice to find the names of those two flowers you found. Hope the trail is in good shape and I know you won’t be cold tomorrow. Love, Mom
