Appalachian Trail meets Aussie – a walk in the woods!

As of today, my son has 6 month visa in America and he will take on the challenge of walking the Appalachian Trail. I am so pleased for him that it has worked out so well. No doubt he will have some challenges ahead but I am sure he is up for it.

A few years ago he decided to walk the Bibbulmun Track (for more information on this walk trail see http://www.bibbulmuntrack.org.au/  It goes from Perth to Albany  in Western Australia. He did it in the hottest time of the year (even walked on Christmas Day!). He managed to complete the Track in about six weeks. His next challenge will take up to six months!

He bought some new walking shoes – they looked all clean and new. I remembered another photo I had from his earlier walk and thought the two photos could tell a good story. So here they are…
