    Hiking on the AT

    August 19, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    I got up and went directly on the highway towards northwest. After 2,5 hours I came into the area of the White Mountains National Forest and there I met Jonas and Julia. Joni is a friend from home and Julia his mexican girlfriend. The baggage which I brought was for them and the sister of Julia lives in Wrentham. They are hiking on the Appalachian Trail (AT) since May this year and I was very happy to join them for one day. The AT is the longest hiker only trail in the world ranging from Georgia to Maine on the East coast and crossing 14 states. was the first time I met Julia, so we got to know each other and then we already started on the trail. As we were in a mountain area we had to get on a peak of course: the Mount Moosilauke (nobody knows how to pronounce it). The path was quite steep and slippery as it has rained the day before but we were fast and arrived at the peak (ca. 1400m high) after around 2 hours. The weather was ok, a little bit cloudy but warm. At the top there was fog first but then it got better. We ate something and went down on the other side of the mountain. At the bottom was a hiker hostel behind which we grilled some sausages for Hot Dogs and drank some beers for dinner. Afterwards it was already dark and we hiked to the next shelter which was a mile away. We crawled into the sleeping bags and slept.Read more
