S.E. Appalachian Trip - 5 Days
Mileage: 1,435 miles
Pace: 300+/- Miles Per Day to allow for POI stops & short hikes.
States Covered: GA, TN, SC, NC, VA
Favorite Trip Lodging Location: Valle Crucis Bed & Breakfast
Me & StreetBetty got to go on our 5-day / 4-night trip to the mountains recently. We had a terrific time. This was our adult get-away trip without the kids for just the two of us. Sometimes you just have to get away by yourselves to recharge the batteries. I try to be very judicious and not just take pictures of every little thing I see but I still managed to take 164 total pictures on the trip. But I've whittled it down to a measly 25 to provide a good cross section of what we saw. Thanks for viewing!
1899 Baptist Church south of Tellico Plains, TN (I love old buildings!!!)
Church Porch Flooring

Old Mast Store - Original Store in Valle Crucis, NC (National Historic Register Building)
Valle Crucis B&B (Stayed here 2 nights of the trip)
View from the deck of the B&B. The horse farm below was once owned by actor Paul Newman. We sat here on this porch both mornings for coffee. Very relaxing!!!
The Appalachian Trail literally goes right down the sidewalk in Hot Springs, NC.
