Hiking the AT

Todays a hazy cool quiet day, some little sprinkles, and beautiful fog. I did my first hike on the AT today, along with a wonderful group of highschool students. 27 pounds of gear and water on my back, and after 8 miles I can tell you, I'm feeling my age. Surprisingly, inspite of many outdoor adventures over the years this is my first backpacking trip. I got to learn about how to filter water, and some of the flora trail side. Right now we're enjoying a cabin... And the kiddos are cooking, strumming the guitar, relaxing and recuperating. My feet will be heavy tomorrow, and my knees cranky... But my spirit light, I'm enjoying this.
