We parked the car at Harbour Mountain B&B in Roan Mountain, Tennessee and then they shuttled us to the start of our hike at Carvers Gap. Beautiful terrain everywhere! We hiked 9 miles before we decided to stop for the night and set up camp then had 6 more to go the next day. It wasn't a very restful night. It was so windy and we were cramped in a one man tent. But the hiking part was so fun! I was exhausted and hurting by the end of the second day, vowing to never do it again, but I really did enjoy it. You can't see views like this from the road!

|Gorgeous view for the evening|
|Backpacking stove used to heat water which when then poured into our freeze-dried supper!|
|There is nothing like watching the sun set from on top of a mountain!|
|Fall colors in full force!|
