Despite the evidence to the contrary in the picture

Dragon’s Tooth is a lofty Appalachian Trail perch reached after scrambling over boulders.

Jeff is on the downhill side of this leg of his hike! The picture above is of Dragon’s Tooth Ridge, Roanoke, VA. He called at 1:30 p.m. to tell me that he was at mile 691 of the AT and was starting the Dragon’s Tooth Ridge climb. This leg of the hike is 719.1 miles, so he has just over 28 miles to go!! Praise be! He’ll be home soon!!!

PS: Although Jeff has not been taking pictures (a situation we WILL rectify before next hike), here is a link to show you some of the trail that he has been covering recently:

    Hi Jeff & Emmaline–I was one of the Wishgranters with Make-A-Wish Foundation that worked with Rebecca and your family to grant her wish- I’ve often wondered about all of you, especially since reading the article about Rebecca’s passing – I was honored to know her the short while that I did -she had such a bright light about her & taught all of us a lot about life, even at her young age. I know that she is with you on your hike as well as everyday, everywhere you all go. Wishing you all well. Take care -just wanted to say hi – Christy
