Today was a work out! It started with a very steep climb up to the first pass. Before the day was over I had walked 14+ miles. When I was training for this walk, I could do 14 miles in the Smokies with significant climbing, in about 6 hours. These 14 miles took me half again as long – 9 solid hours.

This picture was taken as I was headed up to the second pass of the day, while I was still relatively fresh.
