Mountains to Sea Trail

One of the great things about living in Greenville, SC is that it’s centrally located between the mountains and the ocean. Last Thursday I was sitting on Folly Beach, SC (shown below). As one son skimboarded and the other collected shark’s teeth, I watched a dolphin swim by each of them no more than 200 feet from shore. Two days later my wife and I were hiking through the snow at 5000 feet, just north of Brevard, NC on the Mountains to Sea Trail (shown above).

The Mountains to Sea Trail is a 908 mile trail that starts at Clingman’s Dome (the second highest peak east of the Mississippi) and ends at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nag’s Head North Carolina.
