Total Miles: 221
Easter Sunday was a nice Nero. (almost zero miles). Pete and I went to Flapjack pancakes and had an absolute delicious breakfast.. I ordered the peanut butter banana pancakes and eggs. Oh my lanta.. So delicious.
Then we walked around and restocked on food and supplies and as soon as we were about to leave a store to walk to a good spot to stick our thumb out…a lady from inside came and asked if we needed a ride.
Without us saying anything. They said they got a ride the previous day and wanted to pay it forward. They were an absolute lovely couple! ❤️
Today I slept pretty sound in the shelter. It was packed! But I am becoming used to sleeping around strangers. Popular spot it was. Woke up to a beautiful sunrise and started the day in a pretty good mood.
Hiked a couple miles and came to a side trail to Charlie s bunion. I am SO happy I took this trail.
Absolutely gorgeous, gorgeous spot. Took off the pack to climb the next boulder.
The view was absolutely amazing.
And of course, I had to be a goober.
B.B. King stayed in a hotel with me in Gatlinburg and gave me advice on my blister and even gave me a pair of socks that were to help with them. An absolute sweetheart she is.. And her laugh is extremely contagious…. 😂
This place Definitely has a home in top five for views. It sprinkled for a little bit but nothing to much.
Got to shelter around 3 and about an hour later the rain came pouring down. We were so thankful we stopped when we did.
Spent the afternoon stretching, relaxing, and reading. Ready for for good day tomorrow!
I don’t have service now but will post when do.
