Today marks the one year anniversary of the completion of The Thru Project's journey along the Appalachian Trial!
The past year has gone by fast. It's hard to believe a year has passed since the journey came to an end.
So much has happened over the past year, with even more on the horizon for The Thru Project.
In honor of the anniversary of completion, I am presenting our latest image "Katahdin from Nesuntabunt" (above). This image was taken from Nesuntabunt Mountain, exactly 16 miles from the summit of Mt.Katahdin as the crow flies. Enjoying this view was incredible, but also a double edge sword, as we still had 36.3 miles to go to complete the trail! Although Mt.Katahdin was right in front of us, we weren't able to rest quite yet.
Proceeded by Jarred Douglass and Joel Dallas a few days earlier, at 5:30 am on September 19th 2013 Nick Browne, Ryan Underwood, Jonathon Harvey, and myself reached the summit of Mt.Katahdin.
A lifelong dream complete!
Thank you all for the support and watching the project grow!
New images coming soon, with lots of happenings in the upcoming year.

"Foot path for those who seek fellowship with the wilderness" Today marks The Appalachian Trail’s 77th anniversary of its completion.
The Thru Project would like to thank the visionary’s of our past that made the Appalachian Trail a reality.
We would like to also thank all of the men and women who dedicate their lives to helping keep this magical trail alive and thriving.
Here’s to all of the volunteers and all of those who have stepped foot on the AT.
You all are what make The Appalachian Trail “The People’s Trail”.

Happy America day everyone! Today I am presenting images of two very important swimming holes on the AT!
The first image entitled 'Dismal' was taken just after a huge rainstorm at Dismal Falls near Bland VA.
The Thru Project has had some very memorable experiences at this beautiful swimming whole, met some amazing people and even a pet raccoon!
On the day we passed through on our thru hike the falls were in no condition for swimming, but that did not keep me out of the water with the camera to make few pictures of the intensity the storm had created.
The second image entitled 'Cinnamon's Plunge' was taken at the intersection of the James River and The Appalachian Trail. This notorious bridge happens to be the longest foot use only bridge on the entire Appalachian Trail. It is also one of the most fun spots on the AT to un-wind and get your adrenaline pumping.
On this day a good friend of the project, Cinnamon, decided to release his grip on the bridge just as a train passed.
This day sticks out in my brain as one of my most memorable days on trail.
Our bridge session was followed by a trip in to Glasgow, an amazing trail town small, but with all the amenities. This town really knows how to take care of their hikers... More to come on Glasgow in the near future!
Thank you all for following the project!
Many images to come!
Stay tuned and happy Fourth of July.
