My Top 5 Favorite Wild Edibles on the Appalachian Trail

December 21, 2016

Wild edibles and medicinal plants can be found along the span of the almost 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail.

AT Update #33 – Maine State Line to Grafton Notch, ME

April 6, 2016

AT Update #32 – White Mountains Lodge & Hostel to Maine State Line

January 29, 2016

I was absolutely thrilled to be out of the White Mountains. Giddy, even. I had conquered what was rumored to be one of the most rigorous stretches of trail. Unfortunately, not all of my new hiker friends made it through. The last time I saw a handful of them was during the first few miles […]
