The Appalachian Trail Adventure started on May 4th. These are a few photos and comments from the first day on the trail. We hope you enjoy following us as we travel from Georgia to Maine.
This picture shows the starting point of the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain.
This is the first blaze mark on the trail. The blazes are the white marks that the hikers follow.
Every adventure must have a few obstacles. This tree was down in the road where I was supposed to meet Dr. Casseday and his friends. I could not get through and I had to run ahead to find them so they could get food and water at the car (and help move this big tree). We were finally able to work together to move it out of the way.
Our first day had to have TWO obstacles. Yes, this is a second tree in the road. The wind storm the night before did much more damage than we thought. We managed to pass by with the help of some speedy rangers and their chainsaws.
There will be more pictures and stories to come. Remember, we only have access to internet in the small trail towns. Now, go play outside.
