I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

A Hiker Passes Through Macon County:
Jonathan Welch's Account

Jonathan Welch on Wayah Bald

Jonathan Welch on Wayah Bald

A former staff photographer with the Mountain Xpress is attempting a thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail and is keeping an interesting blog of his experiences. [AT Blog]

He recently came through Macon County and made a stop over here, riding in the shuttle driven by Ron Haven.

You can see the two blog entries as he passed through our county by clicking the two links below:

Farewell GA, nice to meet again NC

"It's all about the smiles, not the miles!"

He is keeping an interesting record, photographic and written, of his journey and I hope that he keeps it up for the duration of his attempt. I will be checking on his progress from time to time and I hope that some of you will as well.

Hat Tip to the Mountain Xpress for posting a recent story on Welch's journey that alerted me to this endeavor.

Check out galleries of Jonathan's photographic work on his website.
