75 Years of the Appalachian Trail

It was 75 years ago this week, in August of 1937, that the 2,180-mile-long Appalachian Trail was first completed (work had begun 14 years earlier, in 1923, by NY-NJ Trail Conference volunteers at Bear Mountain in New York).  If you are on the East Coast and haven’t been on the Appalachian Trail recently, or ever for that matter, I would definitely recommend finding a section near you to explore!  This photo was taken near the 6,643-foot Clingman’s Dome summit in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which is actually the highest point along the entire trail.
