Trail Magic!

I’m staying at the Laughing Heart Hostel in Hot Springs, NC. This morning we woke to this view. Snow in the mountains!

The view if the mountains this morning above Hot Springs. Eeek! Glad I was safe and warm inside.

We are told there is a foot of snow on Max Patch, which I crossed just a few days ago. Wow!  Heavy wind today for my zero.

Last night we we had trail magic from Johnny K, Bluebird, and her husband Chef. The first 2 hiked the trail in 2006.

Chef cooks up burgers, hot dogs and chili. I was particularly fond of the salad and fresh fruit--can't carry those on the trail!
