Nantahala River

Took a zero yesterday and stayed at a friends house on the Nantahala river. It was a nice break after a tough 17 mile day on Friday. Cooked real food on the grill, drank beer and watched basketball.  Also too a swim in the 50 degree Nantahala Back at it for day 14. Didn’t start until noon but still managed 10 miles even with an elevation change of 3300 ft in 7 miles. In the tent by 6:30 as it is raining
