AT Happiness – Galleries: Hikers
Rev Kane with Yukon Cornelius my favorite trail name
Originally posted Summer 2015
So today I’m rehabbing a bad knee and have had time to go through my photos from the trail. I thought today I’d go through and post the photos of some of the fine folks I’ve had the opportunity to hike with since starting the trail. What I think is interesting is the amazing diversity that the pictures will show in terms of age, size, condition, etc… The one commonality is that all of them shook up their whole damn life and decided to come and hike the Appalachian Trail. Something that in my eyes makes them all damn fine individuals.
