|Susan at 'her' section of the Appalachian Trail between Cowart Gap and Bull Gap.|
|On previous work trips, Susan helped a GATC crew repair a huge blowout at this site, including making those rock steps.|
|Erosion is a problem for "fall line" trail when water funnels directly down the slope.|
|We didn't see any of the rare plants, but the ferns and lichen were lovely in the snow.|
|Out for a night hike to watch the sunset reflect off the snow from a ridgetop.|
|First time hanging my hammock above snow. I loved how the moonlight lit up the snow at night.|
