July 4th In the GA/NC Mountains Part 2

The first part of this post can be found here. When I awoke the following morning the freezing biting cold had made sleep difficult.  The great thing about camping out in the open was being able to stay in my sleeping bag, roll over and get water boiling for coffee.  As the sun came up […]
