Hooked, that all it took 6.5 miles from on the Appalachian trail from Keys Gap West Virginia to Harper's Ferry. I was not even finished and already starting to plan the next hike. The picture shows us at the State line MD./PA. at Pen Mar Road Lat/Lon: 39.720878 -77.507040 hiked South to Appalachian Trail Conservancy Headquarter Harpers Ferry. Reaching the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Headquarters, I could at that time see my bucket list filling up fast. The 3D model of the whole AT trail in front of me was inspirering me, giving me a desire to push further on the trail at another time.
The Day It Started
Hooked, that all it took 6.5 miles from on the Appalachian trail from Keys Gap West Virginia to Harper's Ferry. I was not even finished and already starting to plan the next hike.
Tonight at sunset walking on the snowy road,
my shoes crunching on the frozen gravel, first
through the woods, then out into the open fields
past a couple of trailers and some pickup trucks, I stop
and look at the sky. Suddenly: orange, red, pink, blue,
green, purple, yellow, gray, all at once and everywhere.
I pause in this moment at the beginning of my old age
and I say a prayer of gratitude for getting to this evening
a prayer for being here, today, now, alive
in this life, in this evening, under this sky.
