Thirty miles in, in Neels gap is the only place the AT goes through a structure (the breezeway pictured). Also home to the tree of soles, where custom dictates that those who choose to go no farther toss their boots into the tree to be done with the trail for good.
Did y’all meet Pirate? Maybe not if you’re moving on instead of staying in the hostel.
weren’t you barefoot in the picture from earlier today? 😉
