Such a great day traversing Franconia Ridge southbound; handing out oranges, brownies, and Snickers to thru-hikers. It was hat and glove weather most of the morning but beautiful nonetheless. It’s amazing what a little orange can do for someone’s day ❤️ #thruhikerforlife . . . #newhampshire #newengland #mountains #whitemountains #hikerlife #hikertrash #appalachiantrail #trailmagic #at2018 #atclassof2018 #thetrek #trektheat

Windy summit today, took a break at Beaver Brook Shelter - AT Mile 1,800 - and had a nice view of Franconia Ridge, which I'll be traversing in about a day and a half. #atclassof2018 #appalachiantrail2018 #appalachiantrail #atthruhike2018 #mountmoosilauke #maineiscalling

Day 99: July 18, 2018 I never cease to be amazed by hostel owners like Mosey. They give so much of their time to meeting the needs of hikers passing thru. We loved staying at Mosey’s place. #appalachiantrail #AT #trektheat #thetrek #hike #takeahike #hiking #thruhike #backpacking #hikertrash #optoutside #mountains #rei #atclassof2018 #georgiatomaine #adventure #livingthedream

Day 99: July 18, 2018 Our last full day in NJ was full of variety. Ups that led down to board walks over bogs and marshes, interrupted sporadically by a monument, farm land, barns, stone walls, and subdivisions. #appalachiantrail #AT #trektheat #thetrek #hike #takeahike #hiking #thruhike #backpacking #hikertrash #optoutside #mountains #rei #atclassof2018 #georgiatomaine #adventure #livingthedream

Also another milestone today! 1300 miles. Tough shorter day since we haven't been out for a little bit. But we ended at a nice view. It seems to be fall up here already as well. 🤔 #at2018 #atclassof2018 #thruhike2018 #georgiatomaine #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrials #optoutside #backpacking #thruhike #thruhiker #hikertrash #adventure #outside #nature #outdoorlife #getoutdoors #hikersofinstagram #hiking #hikingadventures #adventure

After a wonderful stay at the Notch Hostel in North Woodstock, NH, I'm back on the trail and loving the White Mountains! This range is difficult and technical, and my body is definitely feeling the miles now. Less than 100 more miles until Maine! #appalachiantrail #atclassof2018 #thruhike #thruhiking #backpacking #hiking #newhampshire #whitemountains #mountains #picoftheday #photographyislife #wanderlust #takeahike #earthfocus

After a great day of rest I’m getting another marathon in today. Passed the White Rocks Cliff a ways back. I’m loving the pine 🌲 trees. Reminds me of home. #atclassof2018 #at2018 #nobo2018 #at2018thruhike #georgiatomaine2018

“This isn’t as fun as it looked in the brochure” -Overheard unhappy day hiker coming up Mt. Washington

1. State border over the Delaware River 2. Wine berries 3. Section of the trail skirted around Sun Fish Pond 4. Cairns 5. Delaware Water Gap 6. Wild blue berries 7. “Man, bears really know what’s up!” 8. Raccoon Ridge looking over a lake 9. Raccoon ridge looking over DWG 10. “This is where we get to eat lunch. All my friends are at a desk under fluorescent lighting eating theirs.” Crossed 1300 miles and maybe Jersey ain’t so bad after all🤷‍♀️
