Our first few days in Kentucky have been an adventure! We officially out-hiked springlike weather and have seen snow every day so far. At Hensley we woke up to 2-3 inches of snow on the ground and many more drifted up around the tent! It was way too hard to motivate ourselves to get out of our toasty warm sleeping bags.
We lost elevation and were happy to hit our 987 roadwalk, but we were even happier when Jeremy tracked us down to deliver maps, candy, and a warm welcome to the area. THANK YOU!
We tried to make it to Martin Fork Lake but our late start made it too difficult. Thanks to the kind folks of Smith who didn't run us out of their park and even brought us food and visited! So many people have offered us help - we so appreciate you all.
Yesterday we made it to Harlan where we are resting and warming up for our next stretch. Lots of great adventures in the next week - can't wait!
