North Adams, MA: An Appalachian Trail Community

Our pal, Julie Judkins, and all the folks at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy invite you to join the celebration on Saturday, July 30, 2016, as North Adams, Massachusetts, is inducted into the fellowship of Appalachian Trail Communities.

Please. In this hideous era of division and strife, let the healing begin and forgiveness reign for the people of North Adams. As David Miller wrote in his best-selling book, Awol On The Appalachian Trail, and I quote:

The godless people of North Adams have allowed their Pizza Hut to go out of business.

Let's put the past behind us and look to the future ... when half of all Americans will hate the next president, no matter who is elected.

Let's unite and rejoice at the AT festival, with guided hikes to the Prospect Lookout and/or the Sherman Brook Campsite, fun activities and a real-live ceremony at the North Lawn A.T. kiosk at the Greylock Elementary School, from 9:00 until noon.

No, there won't be pizza; however, you'll settle for hamburgers and hot dogs, right? Of course you will! They're provided by the Berkshire Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club.

Locals are encouraged to bring a dish to pass for the pot luck supper. Honored thru-hikers will have first dibs on the food, then it's first-come, first-served. (Ergo ipso facto, locals should eat before they arrive.)

Meet the people of North Adams! See for yourself they're not godless people! (Probably.) Even if they allowed their Pizza Hut to go out of business.
