THANK YOU from Nutty! “As fern begins her time above this road, I’m thinking back over the last 56 days. I continue to be blown away by the support so many have given to this action.

Thank you. Thank you all.

Thank you to everyone who rallied way back on March 28th, and to everyone who gathered on May 20th to denounce the USFS's actions.

Thank you for all the yelling across the closure and all the steep hikes.

Thank you to everyone who came from nearby lands threatened or already ravaged by this pipeline, and thank you to everyone who made the journey or reached out from hundreds or thousands of miles away.

Thank you to my friends who lived beside me for weeks in the woods, and to all who dedicated days and weeks at the support camp without ever having met me before I climbed up a monopod.

Thank you to everyone who typed up my messy handwriting so my messages could go out to you all.

Thank you to the four-year-old who shouted, incredibly loudly, “stay strong!” from across the police tape - I think I’ll always remember that one.

I know to them, that words will not matter, that my gratitude is something I cannot adequately express. But thank you to the trees and plants and shrubs and sun and birds and insects and rainstorms and this whole breathtaking, life-giving mountain. I will keep fighting for you.

Thank you all for the words and prayers and songs and music. You have all shown me again and again how much this struggle matters to so many. I can't stay up here forever, but together we can keep finding ways to hold onto this fire.

I can only expect things to get harder. But as I look back over eight weeks of resistance here, three months on this mountain, so many more of organizing and preparation, I keep remembering how when I started this, I had no ideas that lasting this long was possible. That this entire experience, with all its difficultly and pain and learning and joy, was even in the realm of possibilities.

I wonder, as resistance continues unabated into spring, what possibilities are germinating even now. -Nutty”

Hey y'all! I'm doing an Instagram takeover at The Trek this week - check out my posts at @appalachian.trail! I had to grab this photo while the sun was out - it has poured on us the last six of seven days, so this little bit of morning sun was a real treat! All part of the adventure, am I right?! #appalachiantrail #trektheat #thetrek #thruhike #virginia #backpacking #hiking #adventure #explore #sunshine

AT thru hike day 49
These are some of the strongest women I’ve met on the trail. 
Let me introduce to you Curls and Little Legs. 
They’re a few years younger than me but both these women are wise beyond their years. I admire their bravery and strength especially for their age. I was completely lost as to who I was or what I wanted when I was their age, and their confidence inspires me to continue self improving. 
So blessed to have such amazing women in our tramily!❤️💖

100 MILES. It’s rained 5 days out of the first week we’ve been on trail. We’ve been slipping and sliding all over the place, but all we can do is try to embrace it by playing with flowers in the mud 🌸🌿🤷🏼‍♀️

Inception... #apicturewithinapicture 
Water always looks cool, but it was steaming hot as Haides today on the AT in Virginia. The #waterfalls were pretty epic though. And don’t forget, all trails that go down must go back up. #AppalachianTrail #AT #shenandoahnationalpark #SNP #getoutside #outdoorwomen #trailchat #hiking #cairnrocks #hikelikeagirl #trailstoke #optoutside #REImember #forceofnature #addictedtohiking #themountainsarecalling #optoutside #shutupandhike #withguthook #guthookguides @appalachian.trail

AT thru-hike day 86.
May 21, 2017.
Cove Mountain Shelter to Peters Mountain Shelter (15 miles).
Picture 1) Hawk Rock view. As we descended the mountain into Duncannon the path became increasingly rocky. We soon found out why PA is called 'Rocksylvania'.
2) The trail goes right past this car dealership. I'm a big fan of Mustangs and this one was pretty sweet. 
3) Duncannon is another town that the trail goes directly through. We drive a lot in this area so it was cool to experience it on foot. 
4 & 5) Crossing the Clarks Ferry Bridge. 
6) Overlooking the beautiful PA farmland. 
7 & 8) Our Uncle and Aunt met us at the parking lot at PA 225. They had been planning on seeing us somewhere along the trail. They bought us Subway, chips, drinks, and made dessert! They set up lawn chairs and a table and we talked about our adventure so far. It was so nice to see them!!
9) A couple's super cute puppy, named Forrest, at Peters Mountain. Rash and I got there in good time and got a spot. Snap showed up a little later. We had carried a Subway footlong that our Uncle and Aunt bought for her. They also purchased some gallons of water for us. The spring at the shelter was a total of a steep 0.6 miles off trail and we tried to keep the unnecessary walking to a minimum. It was a heavy, but manageable, three miles from the parking lot to the shelter.

Tessa and Dale are officially off the trail.  I'm so proud of them. They did what most humans will never do (short of a zombie apocalypse...I know I'll never do it!) We dropped them off in Georgia and they walked home to Virginia in 2 months. Freezing temps. Frozen shoes. 20-25 miles a day with everything you have on your back. Tessa said she was praying on the mountain one day,  hurting and exhausted. She heard God day, "this is not your purpose." She was born confident. She knows herself well enough to say uncle. But, it was hard to do. Hard to quit. Hard to admit. Hard to disappoint the love of her life. He's a mountain loving, rock solid champ who loved her through a hard decision. (I love that boy!) They are strong together. In fact, they are amazing together. He grounds her and she sparks him. I'm so excited to see what God does next. You know it's something good. #tessaanddale #hanselandgretel #adventure #at #appalachiantrail #followyourheart #babyisallgrownup #proudmama #strongtogether #godshowsup #trailwisdom #lifespurpose #godissogood

Day 38: 14.7miles #at2018

Lentil and I play this game where the first person awake gets to deflate the other persons sleeping mat. The alarm went off at 545am so naturally I hit snooze and tried to catch a few more zzz’s. I lost.
.
There were a lot of short ascents and descents in the terrain today. Or PUDS (pointless ups and downs) as I’ve been hearing them referred to. Every time you think you’ve reached the summit and your going to see an amazing view you are plunged back down into the forest. We eventually popped out into a valley and dined at a local cafe. It’s a real treat getting hot fresh made food so close to the trail! After lunch we climbed back up into the mountains and were awarded with  Housatonic Rivers ‘Great Falls’ our first real spectacular sight of the day. .
I’ve noticed after 5 weeks on the AT that my thinking has slowed down. The thoughts that deserve my attention are becoming more clear and the others are going by the wayside. Its funny how problems/plans actually requires less thinking and more clearing out.
.
It started raining again by the time we reached camp so we set up the tent and crawled inside. We just lay there for hours, listening to the drumming rain and the birds calling to each other around us. Once the rain let up we ventured out to make dinner. On the menu our signature  one pot meal: basmati rice, dehydrated veg and tuna. Eating under the romantic glow of headlamps and surrounded by mosquitos- I wouldn’t have it any other way 😊

AT thru hike day 42
This is the smile when you HYOH. {HYOH stands for Hike Your Own Hike}
When you break when you want and camp where you want. 
When you hike at your pace and let the others fall in or hike on. 
When you are out here for yourself and then the rest falls into place. 
This week my third tramily formed. A group of 3 alumni thru hikers, a pair, and a few solo hikers all camped out in the same spot Saturday night, and we’ve been pushing to Damascus together since. 
We had the sweetest spot right off the trail last night. It’s the best night I’ve had on my thru hike so far! Good company, nice weather, and lots of laughing. 😊
Though 3 of us will be moving on after trail days, it’s really made this week the most fun I’ve had. I love these moments!
11 miles south of Damascus.

Camped at a sweet spot with an awesome crew last night. Low 50’s, clear skies, great company. We are 30 miles south of Damascus and rolling into Virginia in style!
In this photo: RedBush, HAM, Pyro, Overdrive, Panther, Snorts, and Four Leaf (Ninja)

Day 40?! I thought it was day 38. Wow!
Before I started my thru hike, I read one of the common regrets thru hikers have is they don’t have any photos of their friends. 
I’ve recently incorporated the 3 times rule—if I see you 3 times, we have to take a photo together!
Loving my collection so far. This is Snorts from Wisconsin! She is super inspiring and absolutely hilarious. I’m glad I caught up with her since I missed my chance for a photo with her at Boots Off hostel.

My new favorite spot on the AT: mile 397.2
Wow. 💚
Coming over the peak down to this view was breathtaking. 
For a moment I forgot about the pain. 
I rediscovered beauty in the struggle. I mean, what’s the point of being out here if you don’t? Find beauty in every single mile {a blooming flower, a fallen tree, a mountain range—or in this case, several—, a friendly passerby, anything that brings a smile to your face.} Remember why you chose this adventure. Don’t just embrace the suck, LOVE IT. Embracing the suck isn’t just smiling through the rain and sleeping in high wind, low temp conditions. It’s not just showering once a week or carrying 5-6 days of food on your back. It’s more than tight muscles and sore joints. It’s the daily choice of choosing to be out here versus the mundaneness of everyday life; an attempt to break free from the constraints that hold us back, and loving all aspects that come with that freedom. Sure, maybe it’s easier to stay home, but who said it was a life worth living?
Day 34 and counting. ☀️
