Dawson Cabin Rd - MST Day 10

Lone tree stands vigil over a small private cemetery along Dawson Cabin Road

Frosty morning along Dawson Cabin Road
It was a crisp frosty morning and I only had a half day to hike.  That was all I needed to finish up scouting the symmetrical, county-line-straddling, 57.4 mile 'Topsail Island arc' for the proposed Mountains-to-Sea Trail -- 28.63 miles through Pender County then 28.77 miles in Onslow County.  Highlights of the day were the frosty vistas, a small private cemetery, a very pretty glass-smooth pond and a quaint but modern little country store at the corner of Haws Run Road and King Road where the hiker can stop and get some refreshment.
