The photo shows the Main Street in Hot Springs, NC. In the background, the orange color reveals trees burned in a recent forest fire that closed the AT for several days. Rains over the past few days caused the Forest Service to reopen the trail. Today is a zero day - zero miles hiked on the AT. I'll spend most of the day completing my town tasks, lounging, eating, and reading. Tonight I'll stay at Elmer's. Tomorrow I'll get back on the trail.
