Gatlinburg, TN

I met Rich for a zero day in Gatlinburg. We drove up to Clingman Dome; so I could visit the national park.

I've never been to the park before. It is beautiful here and the dogwoods are in full bloom.

The early sign of spring.

A view of the valley from the road.

One of the stone bridges built by the CCC.

The stream flowing down the hillside to the bridge.

Look close, you can see two bears cubs snuggled together.

We spoke with Kitty, another thru hiker walking through the gap.

Only 1972 miles to go!

Helen, Georgia

A view of Helen, Georgia coming down the mountain. Helen is a lovely sample of a Bavarian alpine village.

The buildings were one behind the other along the main street.

There were numerous shops to visit.  Each with the distinctive south German style architecture.

Athens, Georgia

I am visiting with one of my daughter Erica's dearest friends. I call her my adopt-a-daughter. Rich has a water bag coming here and I plan to meet with him in Hiawassee, Georgia in a couple of days.

Jene and her daughter Isabella.

Amicalola Falls State Park

The time has arrived to drop Rich off at the beginning of the AT.

Rich finishing his last minute packing.

My sister concerned for his safety sent Rich a survival knife. The knife at the top is the one he plans on carrying. The survival knife with it's holster weighs several pounds. The little knife weights 3 ounces. Which one do you think he chose?

Traveling the ICW to Hammond Bay

A rather uneventful day until 4 p.m. when a fog settled over us.

We could barely see the markers as they approached. Rich had to turn on the radar and we still had two miles to go to our anchorage.

Carolina Beach State Park

I asked Rich to stop at Carolina Beach State Park. I wanted to find some Southern long leaf pine needles, but the park rangers had started a controlled burn under the pine trees.

Notice the area around the tree is black with ash and burned pine needles.

Some of the areas were still smoking when we walked by.

Anna found areas where the trees had just dropped new needles. If you look closely you can see the pine needles on top of the charred ground. It make it a lot easier to find the good ones.

New long leaf pines sprouting up.

This is how the Captain and Edie spend their time waiting for me.

We took the entire end of the dock but...

There wasn't very many boats in the marina so it didn't matter!
