"I stand at the terminus, pack on my back, trekking poles in hand, excitement in my veins. I savor the moment. A cold mountain breeze carries the scent of rain and adventure, and I smile. I’ve waited endless months for this day and, taking a deep breath, a grin on my face, I begin my thru-hike. One foot in front of the other, I set out and follow the blazes."
