Appalachian Trail Map

AT Part 2, Day 73

It didn't seem to rain much at all overnight although it did get pretty windy. It was worth staying in the shelter and when I woke at daybreak it seemed like I might get away without getting wet. I started walking at 7:30 and at 7:33 heard this loud noise coming my way and got a torrential downpour! Just as well since if I was still in the shelter it would have been hard to start hiking. It was warm out and this way I was getting done. The rain only lasted like 7 minutes but easily soaked me. My Golite raincoat only pretends to be waterproof. It was an easy 5 miles to Hwy 522 which was where I left off in 2009. And that was it. A second completion of the AT. Not walking 20 miles a day will feel weird. I feel really good these days and it's always bittersweet to finish a hike.

Appalachian Trail

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more:
