Starting Location: Iron Mt. Shelter
Destination: Damascus, VA
Total Miles: 468.6
A night of shivering in the cold, added to 26+ miles today....no need to be a rocket scientist to guess that I'm sleepy and that my dogs hurt reeaaalll bad. All is redeemed though by Lead Dog's kindness in having me stay at his nearby house only 30 minutes away in Bristol, TN. It's amazing how a beer and a good long soak in the hot tub can erase the effects of three 25-mile days.
Another state is here! Great to be here in Trail Town, USA under beautiful skies and warm weather after a few great days of hiking with my buddy Lead Dog. I hope our paths cross again up the trail soon.
