Hiked the 12 miles into Roan Mountain, TN today and am staying at the Mountain Harbor Hostel. This is a lovely place with very nice owners. I’m tenting and have had a shower and am getting my laundry done. The hiking I’ve done over the past two days has been beautiful. At this point, the Roan Highlands have been my favorite part of tbhe trail. Big, open, grassy balds and big sky. Hmmm…just like home. Coming up on 400 miles hiked…and only 80 miles from Damascus. I’m now officially in Tennessee full time. Since the Smokies, we’ve been hiking the ridge between NC and TN, but no more NC now.
