Girl Scout A.T. Adventurers invite you to join us for our 17th annual Backpack trip on the Appalachian Trail . . . June 2012

A.T. Journal

We climbed to the top of Black Rocks today. We had a blast climbing around the rocks and seeing the magnificent views. The air smells so clean. I still can't believe I am doing this! I'm on top of the world and my two feet brought me here!
