This week marks the first week of our Virtual Appalachian Trail Hike. We've got three teams that are making the trek along the Appalachian Trail and they are
The Awesome A's - led by Alie/GEMLADYONE
The Shooting Star's - led by Sheryl/SHERYLP461
And the Walkers, Runner, Joggers and Gadgeters - led by me
All the team started out at Springer's Mountain.
Springer Mountain is a small part of the Appalachian Mountain chain extending from Cape Gaspe, Canada to Alabama, US. It is most well know as the southern terminus of the world famous Appalachian Trail. Indeed the AT makes this otherwise nondescript mountain a world destination.
The Awesome A's hiked 652 miles to Baily Gap Shelter
The Shooting Stars hiked 652.60 miles to Bailey's Gap Shelter also.
The Walkers, Runner, Joggers and Gadgeteers (WRJ&G) hiked 793.89 miles to Pedlar Lake Road
Due to the variances in team sizes, the weekly team results have been calculated to ensure equal team sizes.
