I started hiking at 7:00. It was perfect hiking weather although it warmed up a bit in the afternoon. I’m adjusting to the warmer southern weather. The biggest adjustment had been to the views or the lack of views. After hiking in the north east the past few weeks, I have become spoiled with awesome views.
The section of the trail I hiked today had almost no views……”The Green Tunnel”. However, there are a lot of cool mushrooms, wildflowers, and butterflies to enjoy. I had one butterfly that flew in front of me for about 10 minutes. There is still an abundance of berries, too.
I typically don’t stay in hostels very often and after staying in a hotel a couple of nights ago, it was way too soon for a hostel stay. However, Superman (hiked with him in New York) sent me a message saying I should stay at the Mountain Home Cabbin with Lisa and Scott…..and when Superman tells you to do something, you should listen. 😉
It ended up the hostel was perfectly located at the end of my planned daily mileage so it became my goal for the day. The hostel is in a very small cabin (cabbin) that was built in the 1780s on a larger plantation. Scott and Lisa are in the process of renovating the big house. I really enjoyed getting to know Lisa but missed meeting Scott.
