I have had a growing interest in the Appalachian Trail ever since I read Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods. So it was a special treat when we were driving back down Bromley Mountain and there was a parking area that connected directly to the Appalachian Trail.

We decided to hike a mile up the trail and then come back. It was fun to pass some through-hikers on the trail, and to taste a little bit of the AT.
