The Appalachian Trail

The Appalachian Trail is a 2185 mile footpath spanning the backbone of the Appalachian Mountains from Georgia to Maine. I have been photographing the Appalachian Trail since October of 2000 when I set out on my first long hike. The Applachian Trail (AT) travels through 14 states as it makes its way from Springer Mountain, Georgia, to Mountain Katahdin, Maine.

Over the years I have walked 1700 miles of the AT. Within those 1700 miles I have hiked roughly 6,000 miles, covering some stretches of the trail multiple times. For me, everyday on the Appalachian Trail is new and exciting. A day that is waiting for adventures to unfold. I may complete the entire trail one day, or I may not. Only time will tell.

If you ever find yourself contemplating a day hike, short section hike, or even a complete thru-hike of the AT, or just want to learn more about the Appalachian Trail, you should visit the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
