Jester continues to hike her way East across the State of North Carolina by completing the 40 Day Hikes from the Book, Great Day Hikes ON North Carolina's Mountains to Sea Trail. This episode features Hikes 15, 16, and 17. Jester also took the opportunity to go to Priddy's General Store in Danbury, NC and was able to get a quick interview with Jane Priddy!

Hike #15 took place at Pilot Mountain State Park with a 6.3 mile hike around the prominent peak of Pilot Mountain, Hike #16 was a great hike through Hanging Rock State Park that included a visit to Moore's Knob Fire Tower, and Hike #17 featured a 2.1 mile hike surrounded by pine trees.
