I had a wonderful couple of days up in the mountains of NC with YoungDoo. A small town called Hot Springs which is a through point for the epic Appalachian Trail. There was a steady stream of oncoming backpackers through town and I could not help but get a little envious as I always wondered if I would be able to hike that massive trail one day. It’s been quite some time since I have felt the calming rush of being in the woods for a week or two at a time. Life on my back, humbled by the nature we only dominate because of our theoretical intelligence. I have been hoping to get a good backpacking trip going for a long while now and hopefully soon. For now I am happy to take what I can get in shorter hikes.
These images are of the blazes (trail markings) found along the Appalachian Trail. We hiked about 2/2000th of it in the rain while we were traveling out there. It seems to have left me catching a fever I am now paying for back at home but it was a good hike all the same. I will share a few more images from the trip soon as I make time. In the mean time feel free to browse through Yesterday Was Only for a handful of photos posted from each day.
