Sunrise at Symm’s Gap Meadow.

Two southbounders from 2009, Fisherman’s Friends and Tumbleweed, along with their friend No Deal provided us with some great trail magic. We had more hotdogs and beer than we could handle!

I’m not sure exactly what day it was, but I swear that I blinked as a turned a corner and spring appeared. The forest is alive and getting more beautiful everyday.

    Damn, I look rougher than I thought and that was after a shower. I’m glad I got my hair and beard cut in Daleville. Great pictures (other than mine).
