Felt a bit lazy today so only did 7.3 miles. By the time I got up and got it together, it was about 8.30am which is late for me to start walking. I like to get a few miles under my belt before the heat of the day.
I have taken an extra day to get here as there were a lot of hikers planning to cross yesterday, and it would have meant crowded shelters/campsites etc, so I decided to wait.
As I crossed over the border the terrain changed and the rain set in. Couldn’t help but think welcome to North Carolina – I wasn’t alone, at the shelter a group of young people turned up in the rain and complained of the same.
Lots of mud, rocks and tree roots! I am just so pleased to have left Georgia behind. Although it isn’t that many miles it still makes you feel like you’ve accomplished something and that the end is achievable. The only sad part about today was the loss of my sunglasses, still not sure what happened to them.
Anywho…today for me was all about the State crossing. No scenery or other event or person entered my mind today. 😊 Georgia done ✅
