Spent Monday in Hiawassee GA., the first real town experience – nothing spectacular though. Spent the night at the Blue Berry Patch Hostel. Great place – laundry service! Yesterday I left GA behind, but it was a killer day. Made a full 12 miles, but was dying afterwards. All that was forgotten though with a spectacular sunset from a scenic overlook. All the trees had an orange hue from their buds, and the mountains in the distance were deep purple. Today was a beautiful hiking day. Just the right temperature. for hiking. Spending the evening sitting and reflecting in front of a fire. Life is so simple out here.
