“Tell My Mom Not To Worry” (Georgia to N.C.)

Weddings, portraits and music is what you’ll usually find on my blog, but for the next 4 months it will be transformed into a travel journal highlighting my thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. If you’re not familiar with the AT, it’s a foot path that runs from Georgia to Maine, covering 2178 miles and 14 States. If you’d like to find out more, you can visit the Appalachian Trail Conservancy website.

    Good for you Ben! Glad to hear your mom will rest easy! This looks like it’s going to be a trip of a lifetime. I love the shots of the moon too- and the water rushing through the ice is killer!

    Loving the pictures Ben. Stay safe.

  8. I loved seeing your snow photos. We left on 3/13 and had sleet and snow for a few days, some in NC but after that it was smooth sailing. In fact, seeing some of your bald photos, I think it was Siler Bald, with snow is very interesting since it was not there when we got to it. We did posthole over Clingman’s and all the way to Newfound Gap and somewhat in the northern Smokies, though.

    Thanks for the A.T. pix. I thru-hiked in 1995, and the photos brought back a lot of memories. I miss it. That was one of the best years of my life.
