The idea of thru-hiking came to me while taking a Backpacking 101 course for a quick and easy college credit. Throughout my life, I had heard of the A.T. I knew what it was, but what I didn’t know was that people attempt to hike the entire Trail from Georgia to Maine every year. The revelation that someone could undertake such an adventure simply blew my mind and ignited the aspirations for what would become my future passions. Over the next eighteen months, I prepared for my A.T. trek by taking in every bit of information I could find, going on shakedown hikes, and purchasing my first camera to capture the journey.
