The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is in the voting phase of their annual video contest. Videographers were asked to submit their unique responses to the question,

"How are you a part of the Appalachian Trail?"

This story has nothing to do with any of that.

I saw a video today that was produced by two Appalachian Trail thru-hikers -- Clever Girl & Dumptruck -- that captured some of the momentous moments of their successful hike.

I liked it and wanted to share it with you. Simple as that.

Clever Girl & Dumptruck, however, were highlighted in this recent story about their sensational blog:

Now, they've finished their trek.

They danced atop Mt. Katahdin in a victory celebration and they made a video that I hope will bring you a portion of the joy it brought to me.

May it be the inspiration you need to finish the Trail yourself ... if only to dance on Katahdin.
