3 full weeks; my how time flies. It was foggy all day and started raining as we crossed Clingman’s. Still was a good day though – I didn’t get too hot. The good thing about living this dream is it lasts more than a moment. I knew the best part of the trail was going to be the people and they have been even better than anticipated. I hiked 14 miles today and still felt pretty good. I guess I am getting in shape. I know my stamina has drastically improved. I only have 3 more days of the Smokies, then it is on to Hot Springs, NC.
