Do you know someone who has hiked the Appalachian Trail? Want to see that person’s picture when he or she came through Harper’s Ferry, home of the A.T. Conference headquarters in West Virginia? Simply go to www.athikerpictures.org type in the information, and you can view the hiker.
I tried it for me. On the site, all I typed in was my first and last name—Ray Anderson. I didn’t give my trail name nor did I even note the year I hiked the A.T. I clicked on submit and a screen came up listing my trail name, Hamlet, my given name, and the option to view my picture. Sure enough, the picture came up as seen here, along with the date it was taken.
Try looking up some of your friends. They may be surprised if you email them their photo.
Let’s give due credit for this to the Appalachian Trail Museum, which spearheaded the effort to get this up and online. With help from the ATC and the Quimby Foundation that paid for it all.
Yes, indeed. We owe a lot to the Appalachian Trail Museum.
