The first week on the Appalachian Trail has been fun, interesting, and an adventure. I started at Amicalola Falls State Park on the approach trail and today, a week later, will cross the state line between Georgia and North Carolina.
I’ve met many people along the way, some only once, and others that I hike with daily. All of them are fun to be around and we all share the goal of hiking northward.
The forest and trails here are different, but yet familiar in a way. There is no snow, and the leaves are just starting to appear. Spring is on the way!
Here are a few photos from the first week on the trail.
