Packs lined up outside the Rivers End Restaurant at the Nantahala Outdoor Center. Their owners inside eating a big breakfast before the big climb out of the gap.
Been here. This is where we hiked to on my backpacking trip. 25 miles. It was so amazing to finally see this place that I’d been working so hard to reach, & when I finally made it, man, what an amazing feeling. Miss it.
Ugh I miss NOC…actually I miss home in general. Having the Appalachian Trail and places like this in my backyard was such a blessing growing up.
