Tennessee Trail Magic

Tennessee Salmon

A lot of food from Tennessee club, bold hills, very noisy (bad noise, not fun) hikers hostel in Hot Springs, that helped me to make a choice: you need to stop hanging with crowds too much otherwise you would never see Katahdin.

It definitely was time to increase my daily mileage and speed up towards Maine. My feet were ready. Yes, I started the trail with damaged feet. They were healing day by day! Of course, I bandaged them every morning. I stretched my heels every night in the tent.

My regrets: I did not stay overnight with the Tennessee club. They cooked salmon! Nail in my brain for the rest of my life. Eating tons of salmon after doesn’t help.
