26 Mar 2007: day 45
Start Destination Daily Miles / Total
Stone Mtn Park boundary Station Inn (milepost 248.1) ? / 584

What a great day. It's nice to be about 2,000 feet higher than normal. That equates to a temperature drop of about 7 degrees F. On top of that there were some deliciously cool breezes.

I finished the last few hundred vertical feet and topped out on the ridge finally. That was a good feeling. There I dropped my pack and took a blue blazed side trail to the summit where an old cable car station used to be. It was a nice day but the trees there obscured the views.

Continuing down the MST I couldn't help but marvel how it reminded me of the Appalachian Trail. About half the time it was reminiscent of the AT along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. The other half of the time it reminded me of Southern Appalachian; Balds, mountains with grassy tops.

Side note. Today I hiked through Doughton Park where last week a boy scout was lost for a few days.

I was planning on camping out but at about that time I found myself in Meadow Fork. It is a weird high level flat spot on the Blue Ridge. Of course I was surrounded by private propert again. Then the Station Inn appeared. The rates are cheap so I ducked in for the night.
