June 9, 1983: I eased the puppy off my pack and lifted it onto my shoulders. The Appalachian Trail crossed Virginia Highway 601, a narrow, rural road, and went through an open field for a short distance before disappearing into the trees. I said good-bye to my two new friends and turned away, crossing the road and the field without looking back.

August 8, 1983: The first climb was a bear, even compared to the rest of the trail in this park. By the time I reached the ridge crest I was exhausted, and I had only come little more than a mile. It was depressing. I had the idea in the back of my mind that one or two days of hiking would restore all the conditioning lost in those few days at home. This was somewhat overoptimistic.

Today was a great day for a walk.

Sunbeams and sparkling water. Whittemore Sanctuary, Woodbury, Connecticut, March 29, 2024, 4:44 PM.

'ler wohl eh nichts, und wenn, dann nicht zum Besseren fr uns in 100 Jahren noch nicht geben, so wie versucht wird, den Sport klein und unter dem Teppich zu kehren, statt diesem als Tourismus- und Wirtschaftsfaktor zu nutzen

Ob die Flitzpiepen sich das gut berlegt haben Wenn man demnchst nicht mehr legal durch den auf fahren darf, wie mancherorten geraunt wird, werd ich fter auf der Strae unterwegs sein mssen und den Verkehr mit meinem Rennrad behindern.

September 29, 1983: A relatively-level ridge walk led to Mountain View Pond. Across the small, crystal-clear lake, Boardman Mountains slopes were aflame with fall colors. The air was very tranquil for autumn, virtually a dead calm. A perfect reflection of Boardman was etched into the lake surface, and each stone of its rocky lakebed was clearly visible well out from the shore.

Early spring at Whittemore Sanctuary, Woodbury, Connecticut, March 29, 2024, 4:45PM. According to the official map, this pond is named "Pond". Just to the east is a smaller pond named "Pond."

Ik dacht dat ik er klaar voor was om mijn loopspulletjes naar zolder te brengen... tot ik huilend als een klein kind op mijn kont midden in de kamer zat.

June 3, 1983: I slept the sleep of the dead last night, so exhausted I did not wake even for a moment until 6:30 in the morning.

June 2, 1983: The trail was rough. The mile from the shelter to the cliffs on Little Rock Knob was straight uphill.

Vacant until spring. Empty bird house on state forest field in late autumn. Mattatuck State Forest, Plymouth, Connecticut. October 21, 2020, 5:28 PM.

July 4, 1983: The first half-mile from the hut this morning climbed along the crest of the ridge forming the western rim of the ravine. This led to an interesting summit called Blackrock. It rose above the wooded ridge crest, a huge, barren mound of gray boulders smeared liberally with streaks of green paint.

June 1, 1983: Monday night on the bank of the Nolichucky River had been a time of gentle breezes and soft starlight, but clouds had begun rolling in yesterday morning. By the time I reached the shelter last night they were looking ominous. No rain fell overnight, but day broke gloomy and foreboding.

1/3
August 14, 1983: The trail turned into a virtual rock climb straight up the face of a cliff to the top of Barrack Mountain. It was a rather sadistic climb for a backpacking trail, but some open ledges near the summit offered great views to the north and to the south some of the nicest since Shenandoah National Park.

In the 1980s as railroads abandoned thousands of miles of track following deregulation,
Congress provided for , seeking to preserve rail corridors while allowing for interim use as trails.

Today, there are nearly 26,000 miles of rail-trails in the U.S., according to RTC.

More than $830 million in U.S. Department of Transportation funds announced last week under the Reconnecting Communities and Neighborhoods grant program went to , and a , according to the Rails to Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit advocacy organization.

Among the projects selected for the Reconnecting Communities and Neighborhoods program are at least four that will repurpose former railroad lines into trails.

May 26, 1983: After Lovers Leap was some easy woodland hiking before the Appalachian Trail followed a gravel road for a short stretch through some massive, very scenic meadows in a place called Mill Ridge. Years ago, those meadows used to be tobacco fields. I was enjoying the day.

"'The number is not as big as we want it to be, but the fact its happening is huge,' said Brandi Horton from the Rails to Trails Conservancy. 'The administration is understanding in a way we've never seen before the role that active transportation has in helping people get around the places where they live.'"
