Today is “Victory Hike” Day! We have built up to this all week and now it’s time to really push ourselves. It was the longest and highest hike(in elevation gain) that Grant’s ever done, so he was a little nervous at the beginning.

Today we decided to change it up with a new town, scenic drive and short hike. Our first stop in the morning was Bryson City. We arrived just as the sun was coming up and enjoyed breakfast at Mountain Perks.

It’s officially autumn and one of my favorite seasons to hike in the mountains! The leaves are changing, the air is crisp and the world is getting cozy. You can’t go wrong with North Carolina in October, so packed up the Subaru and headed north for a week of hiking adventures.
