Day 118 & 119 –

I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees. –Henry David Thoreau

Miles hiked Wednesday 18 Miles hiked today 17.5

Boy oh boy, when I don’t blog right away – I forget! What I do  remember of yesterday is that 70% of it was uphill.

I could see the mountains through the trees for most of the hike, but when I finally got to the top of one of the mountains – I had a great view.

I passed over some mountain tops that the views were obstructed.

This old chimney was all that was left from a cabin. What I remember most about yesterday is that I was soooo tired by the time I hit the RV.

While yesterday was all about the climb – today was all about the Highlands! The views were heavenly.

I could not stop taking pictures and none of them truly do it justice.

The clouds looked like snow. I could have sat there all day and just looked.

I climbed a couple of balds today – mountains with no trees on the top.

But from the balds you get some amazing vistas!

One thing that was different is I kept coming across these caterpillars. They were all on the trail and moving as fast as their little feet could go. I kept wondering…where are they headed. Because they were all moving! It was like there was a caterpillar convention close by.

I think I have my hiking legs back. So I will start picking up more mileage here soon.
