Life in Asheville: Mountains to Sea Trail Run

The Mountains-to-Sea hiking trail runs from Clingmans Dome in Tennessee/North Carolina to the Outer Banks. Not yet completed, it is 530 miles long AND runs right past my neighborhood. For my run today, I ran a little portion of it along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

a narrow spot on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail; my wife hates it when the grass brushes her legs
