Overmountain and Other Updates

Hansel and Gretel spent the night at Overmountain Shelter, an old red barn that has been converted into a shelter for hikers.  It sleeps over 20 people and it was once used as backdrop for the movie "Winter People."  They hiked their longest day yesterday.  22.5 miles putting them now 379 miles from their start. They have been slowly building up their daily distance.  In the beginning they hiked 10-15 miles a day, but now they are able to pack in 17-20!  Their next big stop will be Hampton, TN followed by Damasus, VA.

Until next time, happy trails!

It snowed over night so the trail looked very pretty.
