Have you ever dreamed of hiking the Appalachian Trail? Will now you can! Each month we will section hike the AT of GA! We will have a few months where I will host unofficial overnights as well. So dust off your boots and join me on Angela's AT Adventure series! 
Make sure to bring trail snacks, lunch and 3 L of water. Also remember to dress in layers, bring hiking poles and rain gear if applicable.
