Hiking for Habitat: Day 30, April 21

Luke Bennett Day 30

April 21 (29 miles)

29 miles today from Piney Bluff boating access to Hanging Rock. I guess I’m still technically in the piedmont but it sure feels like the mountains. First Mountain view of this hike is a moment I’ll never forget. I’ve had a blast so far but absolutely nothing beats the North Carolina mountains. I met Jane today, the owner of Priddy’s General Store. The store has been run by the same family since 1888! Jane was almost in tears talking about the store’s history. She hooked me up with some pimento cheese sandwiches and ice cream. No chance of wiping the smile off my face today. I’m back in the land of thick rhododendron tunnels, waterfalls and rocky overlooks.
