Photographer's Note

A photo from my future home in Vermont. I hiked up into our backyard and took a shot through the trees, now that was no easy feat with out showshoes ( a nessasity for next year!) While walking up there I fell through the snow frequently up to my knees and occassionally to my hip, oh yeah we get snow in Vermont!

As you can see the house sits on the side of a mountain the chain of mountains in Vermont is the Apalachians a chain of mountains that goes from as far North as Maine and as far south as Georgia! There is a trail in the mountains that is 2,167-miles (3,488 kms) long along the ridge, The trail traverses Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Georgia. The Appalachian Trail is used by day, weekend and other short-term hikers, section hikers and thru-hikers. Thru-hikers hike the entire length of the Trail in one season. The views are amazing!
