Appalachian Trail – I couldn’t resist re blogging my son’s blog today. In March this year he started walking the Trail from Springer Mountain in Georgia and is now getting close to the end of the it – having walked over 1800 miles thus far. It is great following his journey from here in Australia 🙂

Lakes of the clouds hut
Today I walked most of the ridgeline for the presidential range, a bunch of mountains named after presidents. It was pretty amazing as the second half was all alpine zone so you could see everything.
From Mt Webster. Mt Washington is the tallest peak on the horizon.

Today was a very slow day. I got left behind by Veggie and Philly Ben. I may be taking my time a little too much now. But I’m still really tired, and sunburnt for the for time on the trail. Two days hiking through alpine terrain will do that to you!
Mt Washington this morning.
