(a few) photos of my AT adventure

Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 favorites/meaningful

With so many not published here, I chose a variety. So many bad weather days, I didn’t pull out my phone/camera much on those days.

all campsites require hikers to hang their food but very, very, very few supplied any easily accessible way to do it – instead they complain that hikers won’t comply which creates a ‘bear problem’. tree limbs most times are far and few and too weak to hold multiple hiker food bags.

“old halfway point” (check out the swollen eyelids – very difficult to see in the morning)

These were my cramped quarters. I don’t recommend a one-person tent for backpacking.

  1. I’ve only hiked tiny pieces of the Appalachian Trail, mostly nearby in Virginia and was engaged on it in Tennessee many years ago. My hikes were never overnight. I’ve heard it’s a grueling adventure. I like the idea of not quitting on a bad day. The day you stopped on looks quite lovely. 🙂
