Longest Walk Ever: Stories from the Appalachian Trail

Gordon alum Tim Helgesen ’11, an English major with a deep appreciation for nature, is walking the great Appalachian Trail and blogging along the way. Hiking a 2,179 mile route from Mount Katahdin in Maine to Springer Mountian in Georgia, Helgesen began his journey on July 6 and hopes to finish by mid-November. From the peacefulness of the trail to the unexpected animals he meets along the way, you can follow his adventure on his blog, Longest Walk Ever.
