Happy Diamond Anniversary, Appalachian Trail

Published Aug 14, 2012

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 marks the 75th anniversary of the completion of the Appalachian Trail (AT).

If you don't have any spare diamonds to donate to the preservation of the AT, we understand. Times are tough.

So are the men, women and children who take hikes on any or all of the trail's 2,181 miles. We're proud of you all.

We've captured a bit of the AT -- past and present -- in recent posts to AppalachianTrail.com that we'd like to share with you.
