There have been two milestones reached in week 2: crossing the first state line and passing the 100 mile mark.
The first state line was between Georgia and North Carolina. It was just a small sign, nailed to a tree. ChrisF and I stopped, took pictures in the rain and continued into North Carolina.
The 100 mile mark was on top of Albert Mountain in North Carolina. There is a fire tower there, but due to the cloud cover, no views.
The theme of the week seemed to be rain, we finally got a break on the day we hiked to the Nantahala Outdoor Center. Many of us with took zeros there. It was nice to relax and not have to hike on a rainy day!
The last day of hiking this week has brought me just about to the southern border of the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. Should be through in 5-6 days.
