"Seemed like a good lark" is what Grandma Gatewood would answer when asked why she hiked the Appalachian Trail, and alone. She had spent some time on long walks in the area she lived in Ohio and that helped her decide what bare essentials she would need to be able to hike the Appalachian Trail. It was so minimal it’s hard to imagine she had enough. But she did. Her story is amazing and interesting and inspiring. It’s about the trail itself, and conservation, and adventure. But it’s also about spirit and independence and following your dream, and freedom. This is an awesome story. Enjoy!
