On the Appalachian Trail

My son is on the Appalachian Trail. I'm enjoying his blog posts and thought I'd share the link:

Here's a taste of his writing:

This is from the outrageously awesome sunset I enjoyed on Bird Mountain with a Scottish hiker named Jim, who’s wife was vacationing in NYC while he had his fun for a few days in the woods. I made a fire and whooshed it to life as the stars came in to focus. My breathe grew the flames and the light poured back out towards the beaming stars like some sweet savage call and response song from way back when. ‘Hi stars, I’m here.’ Then the moon climbed the mountain and the night was lit up like a 711 parking lot. My fire didn’t seem as impressive next to the moon so I went to bed.
