“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness occurs while you are climbing it.”
Some amazing views from up top!
And even more great views in the valleys and meadows!
Took a Zero in Daleville on day 18 for some non-trail food, drinks and especially meeting up with special friends Jim and Sarah Hunt! PLUS, took real showers, slept in a real bed with pillows...and drank city water (had a bad taste to it :)
McGyver did not bring his trekking poles this year because he is like a Flying Wallenda on a high-wire above the Grand Canyon; great balance. And this worked well ....until he slipped on a wet wood bridge we had to cross and he really twisted his knee. So, in prefect McGyver fashion, he found a stick, carved it out to a perfect walking stick......Like Gandolf...or Frodo and Samwise Gamgee?

Hi Possum! MacGyver and I finished up on Sept.7th with 351 miles in this year. False alarm on MacGyver taking ill. He was dehydrated but recovered in about 2 days. Was great to meet you this year!
