Spent the last two days hiking through these guys, in what felt like 111 degree (check the screenshot pic) weather. One section being 4.3 miles of a 3,000 ft incline. Watched a group of 6 EMT’s carry a girl with a broken leg down one side of it. Crazy and honorable thing. But what I most loved was getting service back on my phone and seeing the huge amount of love and support for the GoFundMe campaign, Hike for Juvenile Diabetes, I started. In just two days we’ve raise $635 dollars!!! Thank you so much to those who’ve donated, as well as to all who have shared the video and website. It means so much to have such an amazing support system! You all are truly incredible. Let’s keep the good going. The link is in my bio if you are interested in supporting the cause!

Day 220 – Mile 1166.7 + 891.1: Woke up to a plate full of scrambled eggs, wholewheat waffles with maple almond butter made by Lauryn @mizzespn and then back to the trail we went! I think the AT crosses Skyline Drive about a million times! Quick stop at Loft Mountain camp store then on up to a stealth site I’d been looking forward to for days – cliffs on the one side for sunset and ledges on the other for sunrise! It did not disappoint! #AppalachianTrail #hiking #backpacking #at #thruhike #bphiking #at2017 #hike #thru #TrektheAT #outdoors #travel #camping #adventure #wanderlust #widernessculture #optoutside #nature #naturephotography #womenwhohike #alpinebabes #outdoorwomen #mountains #pacificcresttrail #continentaldividetrail #hikingcollective #livetyheadventure #getoutside #natgeo #neverstopexploring

Day 153 – 1978.1: We are so happy to have gotten to see these last couple of mountains in the sunlight! Especially Saddleback which we crossed today. It’s been such a treat to be able to climb these behemoths in good weather. All the rain we have had this spring definitely makes us appreciate a sunny day. As we had to get off the trail recently we sadly said goodbye to the trail family we had been hiking with for the last 1500 miles. Today they enter the 100 mile wilderness and we couldn’t be happier for them. We eagerly await their summit photos. The trail has been a little lonely lately but we have had an opportunity to meet a bunch of new people; Including a hell of a lot of south bound hikers (who we have found to be utterly pleasant, happy, and helpful). Tomorrow we likely join the ranks of all the other 2000 milers and couldn’t be more excited. #walkwithus
