I can't recall the exact time that I finished up my hike but I think it was around 5:00pm. Sore and tired, I rested in a rocking chair at the visitors center and waited for my ride to arrive. Suzanne and the kids weren't too far away, but it did give me ample time to reflect on my hike. So far I've hiked over 164 miles and I have the Great Smoky Mountains ahead of me. So far my AT adventure has far exceeded my expectations...looking forward to what lies ahead.
