AT Happiness: Milestones
So on the trail I am trying to stay focused on the trail, mindfully walking and enjoying each step. However it’s hard not to think about the milestones along the way.
First there was mile zero on Springer Mountain. Next, my first night camping alone in the forest.
On the second day I took my first fall, my feet went out from under me and I landed on my pack like a giant, bearded tortoise.
Next, was summitting Blood Mountain, the highest point in Georgia. It provided the vista shown above.
My first resupply and zero day spent at Neels Gap and then two days later a stop on Helen, GA to rehab my first injury a knee problem I aggravated descending Blue Mountain.
In the last several days three big ones, crossing into North Carolina and finishing my first state. Then completing my first 100 miles and my first blue blaze which I’ll discuss on my next post.
So far a great trip and I am thankful for each step I’ve taken, and many happy days my friends – Rev Kane
