After some gloomy days in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, this blue-sky day was a great motivater!
A view from Charlie's Bunion in Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
On top of the watch tower on Clingmans Dome, the highest elevations along the Appalachian Trail.
Reconnecting with old friends was just another perk of hiking the AT. Here am I am at Gettysburg with a college friend.
Hanging laundry at Green Mountain House Hostel in Vermont. The community of support surrounding the trail was amazing!
There are over 250 three-sided shelters along the 2,000 plus miles of the AT. Some big, some small, some just right.
Mount Katahdin in all her glory. The final climb of the AT for anyone hiking northbound. Baxter State Park in Northern Maine has so much to offer!
The famous wooden summit sign. This. This photo is what accomplishing your goals looks like.
All journeys are different to get to the top of Katahdin. Mine included a cross- country motorcycle trip to see my nephew. Inspiration comes in all forms.
My External frame backpack deserved its own summit photo.
One of the last shelters before Katahdin and still meeting new faces. The people are truly the best part.
One of my favorite photos from the trip. Just something about the overcast, the bent trees, and the look of happiness and content on my face.
Sometimes you just need a shirtless photo from a fire tower.
