Son Jay on the AT by sailingmusic

Son Jay on the AT

My son Jay hiked the Appalachian Trail (Georgia to Maine) in 2005. We were lucky and were able to meet him several times along the way so my husband could hike with him. I was looking back at some old shots and really liked this one of him. The white painted like on the tree shows where the trail goes. So instead of spring flowers you have this today. Seems like lots of people went to the AT trail to get away from the virus. That didn't work so they have most of it closed down now. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy and 29 of the 31 Appalachian Trail Maintaining Clubs have formally asked the U.S. Department of the Interior to officially close the 2,193-mile trail. We'll see what happens.
What an experience that must have been. How neat that your husband was able to do parts with him - an experience they'll both always remember.

Unfortunately trails need to be closed. Good for son - its a huge trail!

That sounds quite an accomplishment to be proud of. We had problems in the UK with people heading for the national parks during Lockdown and the Government had to intervene.

Closing the trail seems like a sensible thing to do under the current circumstances.
