Starting at Springer

04/08/2015

I flew into Atlanta this morning, jumped into a shuttle and headed off for the trail! Ron the driver quickly went through the list of AT do's and don'ts and before I knew it we had arrived at Springer Mountain. No turning back now :) After a few quick photos I headed off to the first camp shelter, Hawk Mountain. I was nervous I would be camping alone my first night but to my surprise about 35 smiling ( and tired) faces greeted me on the top of the mountain. What a site to see that many tents, hammocks and bear bags all strung up! What a day! Can't wait to do it all again tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that...
