Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Mountains-to-Sea Trail at 35
This year, the Mountains-to-Sea Trail turns 35, a milestone celebrated at the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail’s annual meeting Saturday in Saxapahaw. At present, the estimated 950-mile trail, running from Clingman’s Dome on the Tennessee border to Jockey’s Ridge on the coast, is about half finished. (You can read about what’s going on with the remaining 400 or so miles here.)
We’ll be writing more about Saturday’s meeting this week. For now, come with us on a 90 Second Escape along the MST.
