Early New Year's morning, after we stopped by to make sure the heat was on in Rocky's cabin, Junker drove my brother Chuck and I to the Trailhead near his home in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania. For just a few glorious moments I was back on the Appalachian Trail.
As I snapped the photo below, I couldn't help but think that this was the perfect to begin the New Year.
Now that another holiday season is quickly fading into memory, we find our thoughts rapidly focusing on that next grand event on our calendar; the start of yet another thru hike just a bit more than two months from now.
The Trail indeed beckons, but not necessarily for those reasons seemingly obvious to most in the hiking community.
As the snow begins to melt and the calendar once more beckons us to think of Spring, we will prepare to tread this path we have trod so many times before.
The story however, will not be of the trek. It never has. It never will.
Our "story" is about the people God grants us the privilege of calling friends, sharing with them His story, which is the greatest story of all.
