Drop Everything and Hike the Appalachian Trail

Here at Frayed Passport, we’re no strangers to elaborate and adventurous bucket lists. From volcanic eruptions in Hawaii, to crossing Patagonia on horseback, and lots more, we’re happy to talk about all the amazing places we’d love to visit—and think you should too. But today I’m going to stay a little bit closer to home and highlight the Appalachian Trail.

I wasn’t a very athletic kid. Like, at all. In high school I lived in an Appalachian region of Pennsylvania and heard of people hiking the trail but didn’t care. Fortunately, after some years of adventure travel, living in the city, and learning to appreciate physical activity, I’ve added all 2,200 miles of the Appalachian Trail to my bucket list.

I mean really, check out these photos!
