Day 32 Vandeventer Shelter to McQueens Knob (21.2 miles) 457.3 miles total

A few showers today but not enough to make the trail wet and slippery. I’ll take that. Made for third straight 20+ mile day.

Below is view from near where I camped last night. Can’t get away from Wataugua Lake.

Trail went right through someone’s pasture.

Was going to try a quick trip into town for lunch today as I did yesterday. Not quite so lucky. Crossed hwy 3.5 miles from Shady Valkey, TN. Tried hitching a ride but only 1 car in ten minutes. Odds didn’t seem good so I decided to keep on trekking.

Tonight’s sunset from Just Chez Pete front porch!

Very windy tonight after sun went down. Gusts up to 50 mph I’m guessing. Very loud. Tent seems to be standing strong.

About 12 miles to Damascus, VA. Should be there early tomorrow afternoon. Can’t wait!

Happy trails!
