Happy Anniversary Dragonfly and Prairie Dog

Today, April 3, 2013 was the day we started hiking the Appalachian Trail.  Our family and friends (support team) drove us to the airport early in the morning.  We arrived in Atlanta, greeted by our wonderful friend Kathy and her brother who drove us to the trailhead, at the top of Springer Mountain.  The four of us walked to the start .9 from the trailhead and then back to the trailhead where they left us.  We hiked another couple of miles to the Stover Creek Shelter where we made camp for the first night.

I always knew we would complete the journey.  What an adventure it was, being outside all day long, sleeping in a tent, watching the seasons change, and seeing ourselves change too.  It was a life changing adventure, one I would take again.  So many good things have happened because of this journey we took together.
