Appalachian Trail Backpacking Trip

Six brave boys and 3 adults begin our backpacking trip at the southern end of the Appalachian trail.  (Click on a photo for a larger image.  Click the back arrow on your browser to return)

A beautiful start to our hike, the parking lot at mile .09 on the Appalachian Trail.

First stop was Stover Creek Shelter

So far, so good!  Happy hikers

No boys!  That is not the shelter... 

We stop for lunch at Long Creek Falls

Sunday morning at about 1:30 am the rain started.  And it didn't stop all day!

Luckily we had camped at Hawk Mountain Shelter which provided some cover.

Kenny is enjoying the trip

We stop at Hickory Flatt cemetery shelter to get out of the rain, and what do the boys do... play in the rain!
