Collin on the AT Trail Day 12 [PHOTOS]
I am so proud of my son Collin. After a night off the Appalachian Trail in Franklin, North Carolina, Collin has made it to Wayah Gap in North Carolina, 115.7 miles into the Appalachian Trail with 2073.5 miles to go until the completion here in Maine. It's a good thing he stopped and purchased a waterproof rain coat, as the weather tomorrow calls for a 40 percent chance of showers with highs around 65.
He has seen some fantastic sites in North Carolina, and wanted to share some of them with you!
Below is a tree where hilkers have discarded their old hiking boots. It's the tree where old hiking boots go to die
There is a fire tower in Otto, North Carolina, and Collin climbed it
Here's the view from the Fire Tower
Here's the beautiful sunrise yesterday in Franklin, North Carolina
Appalachian Trail hikers rely on the kindness of strangers. Here's Collin with one of his hiking buddies, Chris Robinson. They were picked up by a former AT thru-hiker and given a ride into town
