Walking Northward with Spring

We will be starting in Georgia, feeling the last nips of winter at higher elevations (maybe?), and experiencing the transitions as spring gives way to summer followed by the colors of fall, as we make our way northward to Maine.

One of the things that I am looking forward to is being enveloped by green on our journey. I guess that's good since the AT is also affectionately known as the "green tunnel." I have been spoiled for the last few years with the expansive panoramas of the west, but I think the contrast will help me appreciate the landscape of my earlier years all the more. In particular, I love rhododendron, which is widespread in Virginia and other portions of the trail.
