      One Down, Thirteen To Go

      ... I was a bit bemused, but appreciative.

      The local hiking club was hosting a lunch at a new brewery that was opening up, so we headed there for free hot dogs and chips and the like. Sadly, the brewery doesn't actually open until the end of April so no beer, but still: free lunch. Afterward, we headed to Outdoor 76, a local outfitter, to get some gear with some other hikers we knew. All up and down the trail we had heard that the shoe guy there was some sort of ...

      Building up the miles

      A travel blog entry by jwatson on Mar 25, 2015

      ... really tired.

      We really felt those 19 miles the next day. Since we did those extra miles, we were able to do a 13-mile day and reach ***** Creek Gap and the Top of Georgia Hostel in two days rather than three, but I was definitely much more tired that day. My legs got more sore and tired earlier everytime I went uphill and I was going slower than normal. It wasn't a very pleasant day, but we made it and got to sleep ...

      ... feeling crossing into another state knowing I was that much closer to Maine. We are currently in Franklin, North Carolina getting the greasiest burger I can find and piling a couple of milkshakes on top of it. I can honestly say that was one of the best burgers I have ever had. Both of my knees are hurting really bad from all of the stress put on them from ...

      Courthouse Creek Waterfalls

      ... We crossed the creek to the island to see the waterfall, but it was too icy to get down for a good view. Besides, this was not the one we were aiming for. We followed a steep path up the left side of the waterfall and then continued following a faint, overgrown path heading upstream along Courthouse Creek. There was no flagging tape and the path was little more than nothing at all. The only thing that helped was the snow - we ...

      Foothills Trails Waterfalls

      ... put our Yak-Trax back on to make the final descent to see the falls. We were surprised to see another couple and their dog at the waterfall, the only other people we've seen on our hikes so far. D.E.W. Falls is not a huge waterfall, but it’s in a really pretty setting. Even more so today with a thin layer of ice coating the pool and some nice icicles framing the waterfall. After a couple pictures we hiked back ...
