    June on the AT

    Morning of June 1st 2023, ¼ of the way to Katahdin

    The Quarter Way INN is a gorgeous spot just off trail shortly after us Hikers reach the ¼ to Katahdin marker along the AT.

    The morning of June 4th was a hard fight (for me personally, it was actually a pretty mellow ridge) to the 600 mile marker

    8:12am still carefully contemplating if it is “really time” to pack up my quilt and face the rainy, chilly morning ahead

    Earned my coveted Vortex Patch after my first Double Zero (2 rest days in a row) in Pearisburg, VA (mile 637 of the Appalachian Trail) at Angels Rest Hostel. It was Zerolicious! 

    Selfie from my first truck bed hitch of the trail. Normally I love a hitch in a truck bed, but this was a winding Virginia highway and there was no tailgate on this truck 😳

    Sunrise from the ledges along the climb to Dragon's Tooth (Mile 702 of The Appalachian Trail) Awesome option for a Virginia day hike with spectacular views 

    Hiker Chores at Stanimals 328 in Glasgow, VA. Hanging my quilt up in the shower to dry after a long few days of hiking and camping in heavy rain.

    Skyline Drive is a gorgeous stretch of road through the Shenandoah National Park. Cyclist, motorcyclist, RVs, Hikers and animals all share the road and the views.

    Hazy days in Shenandoah National Park. In part this haze is due to the fires up north but paired with the humidity and moisture in the area it sure made for a beautiful morning on July 1st.

    A few days later we reached the 1800 mile mark. Heading into the White Mountains for our first 4,000 footer of the state. The climb up to Mt Moosilauke was grueling and we got our first taste of what it was going to be like hiking in the true north.

    Near the end of Massachusetts (mile 1548) we crossed a road by a small farmhouse that provides an awesome Trail Stand stocked with cold drinks, snacks, and free Wi-Fi. A little over halfway through August we made it to Vermont and intersected with The Long Trail. Running the length of the state of Vermont, it is the...

    Challenge: Can You Eliminate Single-Use Plastics From a Thru-Hike?

    The first item I was immediately satisfied with (surprising so, I might add) was my switch to an insulated water bottle. Regular water carries also were a treat as the fresh spring water would often still be cold when I reached camp for the evening. Doesn’t hurt to pour a few tall boys into it while leaving a gas station and be the shelter hero at the end of the day either.
