Moments versus Miles

Sunday, February 19, 2017

When writing about the AT, there are so many choices!  What should I focus upon?  Talk about the other hikers?  Keep a log of miles and campsites?  Try to find moments to savor through each day?  Today, I found moments.

I’m walking through fog, wisps of wet mist threading between tree branches.  One optimistic young tree has catkins dangling from twig tips.  Droplets of mist reflect the pearly luminescence of morning light filtering through clouds.

Some moments are full of peace, some moments are a little more thrilling.  We found a merry-go-round at Hickory Flats Cemetery, administered by the New Bethel Baptist Church.  My pack and I had a quick ride.



One more moment for the day – swinging from vines, of course!
