Hiking the Appalachian Trail

Tom Logsdon, a seasoned thru and section hiker, returned to the Appalachian trail this past spring to hike from Springer Mountain, Georgia north through the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, the Roan Highlands of Tennessee and into Virginia on the historic Appalachian Trail. The spring hike provided a stunning backdrop for Tom to document the wild flowers in bloom, to commune with nature and to observe the new thru hikers of the 21st century. Come listen to Tom’s stories of past and present hikes, and enjoy the beautiful nature photos that Tom captured on his journey along the Appalachian Trail.
