... in a while. It was nice to gain elevation again and see the amazing sights that accompany mountains.
I made my way into Vermont, and subsequently a lot of mud. However, Vermont had some great views and I was able to make really good time. I was really excited about hitting the White Mountains in New Hampshire which caused me to zoom through 'Vermud".

Doing a pilgrimage, walking for charity, etc. But each and every person hiking this trail goes through a range of experiences that I'm sure none imagined before they started.
The Appalachian Trail kicks your butt and then does it over and over. I'm sure a bunch ...
