Congratulations to these 2023 Appalachian Trail Thru-Hikers: Part 8

Covering an impressive stretch of 2,200 miles across 14 states, and embarking on an exhilarating journey through the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, these resolute Appalachian Trail thru-hikers have successfully trekked from Georgia to Maine. When they took their initial steps on the trail, the prospect of reaching the trail’s northern terminus in Maine might have seemed like a distant dream, but it was a dream that propelled them forward every day. Along the way, they grappled with challenging terrains, fierce weather, and a host of other obstacles that pushed them well beyond their comfort zones. They turned this dream into a hard-fought reality, making their arrival in Maine a triumphant win they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.

Let’s join in celebrating these incredible hikers on their remarkable accomplishment!
