Hiking for Habitat: Day 19, April 10

Luke Bennett Day 19

April 10 (19 miles)

19 miles today from Vann Crossroads Fire Dept. to Howell Woods Environmental Learning Center at Johnston Community College. Met a lot of friendly people enjoying their Sunday, including a fellow crazy person, an ultramarathoner named Carlos. I hiked through the historic Battle of Bentonville site, which occurred on March 19-21, 1865. The battle was one of the last of the Civil War and the largest ever fought in North Carolina. I found a great camping spot way back in the trees behind the Howell Woods building.
