Hiking the Appalachian Trail

Tom Logsdon, a seasoned thru and section hiker, returned to the Appalachian trail this past spring to hike from Springer Mountain, Georgia north through the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, the Roan Highlands of Tennessee and into Virginia on the historic Appalachian Trail. The spring hike provided a stunning backdrop for Tom to document the wild flowers in bloom, to commune with nature and to observe the new thru hikers of the 21st century. Come listen to Tom’s stories of past and present hikes, and enjoy the beautiful nature photos that Tom captured on his journey along the Appalachian Trail.

Highlights include the beautiful Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, hundreds of ancient pagodas and temples in Bagan, village life experienced during a several day cruise on the fabled Irrawaddy River, and the unforgettable beauty of Inle Lake.
