Nancy East of the Hope and Feather Travels blog joins Jeremy to talk about the Foothills Trail in upstate South Carolina and western North Carolina. This adventure takes hikers through some of the most beautiful hiking scenery in the southeastern United States, including by some pretty amazing waterfalls. Nancy also talks about her record-setting month-long hike of every single mile of trail in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which she did to raise money for charity. Before the interview with Nancy, Jeremy explains the Southern Blue Ridge Escarpment, the dramatic setting for this hike, and the conservation history of the area.
