The Appalachian Trail - Harpers Ferry

On Sunday, we will head a few hours down the road to cover a few miles around the Southern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail (AT). We will stand on Springer Mountain and touch the plaque and maybe see some southbound thru-hikers taking those last, important steps. For us, these will be just a few more early steps in our long walk in the woods. We began our family section-hike of the AT last summer in Harpers Ferry, WV, and because I wasn't blogging at the time, you didn't know. (Question: If you don't blog about it, did it really happen?) Here are few photo highlights to catch you up before we hit the trail again.

We were all there - even the old pup. This was his last hurrah with us as he passed away just a few weeks after we got home. It was important to me that he be there with us as we got started.

Harpers Ferry is considered the psychological halfway point of the trail. Of those over 2,000 miles, we've now covered about 3. Baby steps, y'all. Baby steps.

Sweet times on the trail.
