Countdown to Amicalola: Springer Saturday #6

The Appalachian Trail is not the only trail to start atop Springer Mountain. Also leaving from there is the Benton MacKaye trail, a long distance trail that goes from Springer Mountain to Davenport Gap at the east end of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The trail is named after Benton MacKaye, who came up with the initial idea of the AT.

As expected, Friday was an up day on the whole for me. Today may be as well, although I didn't have lunch so I might squeak in under the wire for this one. Not much more to say about that.

In other news, Erin and I purchased some fruits and meat to dehydrate and/or make jerky for the hike. We're currently dehydrating some strawberries, which I'll have more to say when they finish early tomorrow morning. Right now the house is filled with the smell of strawberries, a not unpleasant scent.
