Left Gatlinburg this morning and headed out. Got a late start due to the times the shuttle runs, but still put in a strong 11 mile day. The views were beautiful when the mist cleared, and other times I was walking within the clouds. I felt strong and the frequent stopping and eating seemed to be working. My goal this month is to increase my mileage to 10 to 12 mile days. It’s good to be back on the trail.
