Hiking into the Mist


Yesterday we met friends Tim and Vickie at Newfound Gap. They began hiking the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain in Georgia on March 15th and plan to through hike to Mt Katahdin, Maine. We lunched with them at a restaurant in Cherokee then took them to a laundromat (since our laundry equipment is disconnected). Then we brought them back to our house for hot showers, dinner on the deck, and a night’s rest in a real bed. This morning we took them back to Newfound Gap in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The temperature was chill, the wind brisk, and the fog like pea soup. What’s worse, the weather forecast calls for snow over the next couple of days. What an adventure!

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
