Claire Cothren drove up from Athens, GA to meet us to do an overnight hiking trip on the Tanawha Trail that runs along the Blue Ridge Parkway right outside of Boone, NC. We took a few side trails off the main trail completing a total of about 16 miles in 2 days.
We saw lots of deer as soon as we got on the Parkway. They were not even scared of us.
