Bald, North Carolina - 117 miles
down and 2051 miles to go
photos are Squirrelfight's as he came up behind me
through Georgia and North Carolina. Until we met, I didn't
appear in his photos, but you can see the barren landscape that
the first chapter takes place in. This photo always reminds
me of that morning I woke by Wine Spring and headed out
over Wayah Bald.
trees all through Georgia and North Carolina were still the sleepy
gray of winter. There was a sedation
to them that was contrary to the excited energy of a new adventure,
but did stimulate some long days of introspection.
is the only decent photo that I took with my disposable camera, but
it's of the view off of the tower on Wayah Bald just as I packed
up my things to head on.
