Entry #33 - April 24, 2003

Long day again today – 16 miles.  (Yesterday was 16 miles, too.) Nothing too remarkable about the hike. We did see a lot of wildflowers, though. The hillsides were filled with white trilliums. We also saw purple (well, more maroon, really) trilliums and some off-white with purple inside. We’re at Roaring Fork Shelter tonight. Mello Yello, Jane, Hepcat, Radar, George & crew and some others are here. A full house with everyone piling up to get into Hot Springs.

Preparing to Hike the Appalachian Trail?

Commonly used guides by A.T. thru-hikers include the Appalachian Trail Guides (published by the Appalachian Trail Conference), the Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker's Companion, and the Appalachian Trail Data Book. The guide series includes a guide for each section, along with a series of trail maps. The Thru-Hiker's Companion has helpful info on towns, shelters, and water. The Data Book has basic distance info for road crossings, shelters, and other features. All are excellent tools for use during a long distance hike.
