Leaving Civilization and my First Bear

Leaving Civilization and my First Bear


So today I woke up by alarm clock, jumped in the shower in a heated room. Ate a hot breakfast cooked by someone else. I’m connected to the world by a wifi signal while typing this in a nice lobby in a comfortable chair, I’m dry.  All of that goes away in about an hour.

At the lodge there is a painted map of the AT that is 20 feet high, it makes the trail seem appropriately daunting.


Especially from this view


Suddenly out of the corner of my eye I spotted my first bear.


Have a happy day my friends – Rev Kane
