May 17, 1983: I finally made my way back to the shelter no rides, so it was another 3-mile walk in Fontana. You would not think this would bother me, with all the walking I am already doing on this trip, but my legs and the bloody stumps I use for feet have only so many miles in them on any given day, and I hoard these like a miser.

Sometimes even the shadows have tails.

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting sunset (h/t George Harrison), Hidden Lake, Fall Mountain, Plymouth, Connecticut. February 18, 2018, 5:44 PM. After a day of thawing, numerous holes in the ice reflect the pinks and golds of a sunset under a crescent moon.

Beautiful spring day hike. Sleeping Giant State Park, Hamden, Connecticut. April 20, 2023, 4:56 PM.

First trail walk with the doggo since the accident last September. What a feeling! Life is good <3

May 13, 1983: Heading north from Springer Mountain, the tiny unincorporated community of Wesser, North Carolina is the first trail town through which the physically passes. This corner of Wesser is a narrow strip along the floor of the deep, heavily-wooded, steep-walled gorge which the Nantahala River has gouged through the mountains.

They're extending the B-Line up to 17th Street this summer, which is pretty great. Sure wish they'd work on the North Dunn path though!

May 12, 1983: I walked non-stop for the first 10 miles. The final 6 miles of todays hike were nothing more than a hazy blur of fatigue. I can barely remember anything of the trail past Wayah Bald until I reached the stubbly crest of a ridge crisscrossed by logging roads four miles later. From there, the Appalachian Trail descended for almost a mile through luxuriant rhododendron thickets reminiscent

July 11, 1983: After a mile of descent, the trail crossed the Shenandoah River on a highway bridge and climbed the steep bluffs lining the opposite shore, beginning the last mile into town. Harpers Ferry, West Virginia is located on the roughly triangular-shaped peninsula

the Box Canyon and Kitchen Mesa at ,

It took some exploring to find our way out of the box canyon to the top of the box: the old trail has washed out. Then more wandering to find a route around the deep canyon and over to Kitchen Mesa.

The top of Kitchen Mesa is startlingly white: the Todilto formation, dolomite and gypsum. The Kitchen Mesa trail goes through the old Ceolophysis quarry. The whole area is beautiful Colorado Plateau .

June 7, 1983: The trail gradually descended along the ridge into the green valley where Damascus lay nestled among the mountains. The late morning sun had finally burned through the clouds as I followed the Appalachian Trail along the main street of this small southwestern Virginia town.

May 10, 1983: The journeyed through a landscape of twisted masses of rhododendron jungles breached by small, rocky streams bordered by profusions of growth, even wilder and more densely entangled. At times, the trail was a tunnel, completely encircled by rhododendron, their thickly interwoven branches forming walls and a roof.

May 9, 1983: Dave and I had lunch in Bly Gap, just across the state line into North Carolina. One state down and eleven to go. A large, rather steeply-sloping meadow ran down the side of the ridge from the crest there, bright green grass broken by reddish brown channels where several runoff streams (dry today) exposed the clay soil.

August 14, 1983: I dropped my backpack and carried my camera five hundred feet down a side trail to Rands View, a spot at the top of a high, sloping pasture where a remarkable view northward revealed the Taconic Range from Lions Head in Connecticut to Mount Everett in Massachusetts.

Big ol' burl along . This one was around two feet in diameter soit was hard to miss.

September 13, 1983: The Appalachian Trail descended alongside Moss Pond's outlet brook to Gentian Pond. A trail shelter was perched atop a small ridge flanked by the pond on one side and another great view to the south on the other. I caught up to a couple of guys there the first people I had encountered since leaving Gorham.

Wieder zurck nach lngerer Pause

Hin und wieder brauche ich etwas Abstand zu den Dingen um mich zu erden, fokussieren und wieder ins Gleichgewicht zu bringen.

Natrlich war ich nach wie vor in der Natur regelmig Wandern und Laufen, woraus ich die meiste Kraft generieren kann - die Natur ist halt das beste Balsam fr Leib und Seele

May 6, 1983: Cowrock Mountain was the star of the show today, with many views from the open, rocky ledges and terraces around the summit. There were more great views of that maze of mountains and narrow valleys threading west and northwest towards the Western fork of the Blue Ridge.

This tree at the trailhead and the entire trail is dedicated to a local landowner who died young from leukemia in 1993. I took several pictures of the tree from different distances and angles, and liked this one the best even though it only shows the core third of the tree. I should come back in a few months when it's filled out.

The Cupertino end of the same line, near the level crossing at Sunnyvale-Saratoga Road. This segment is also paralleled by an urban trail, but it's considerably older, presumably dating back to when the line was in regular use: there's a fence, No Trespassing signs, and some distance from the line. Debris in the mud suggests there might have been a passing track, storage line, or spur here long ago. Safe bet those houses are much newer.

May 5, 1983: It was a comparatively gentle climb for the most part, but I have a long way to go before my body is truly ready for this adventure. The day was sunny and hot, and I ran out of water about halfway through the climb. The heavy backpack I was carrying, and the extra pounds of my overweight body had taken their toll on the soles of my feet,
