Jim Zoschg on a Section Hike

There's an article in the 21 July 2007 Endeavor News ("serving Potter and Cameron Counties in Northcentral Pennsylvania") by outdoor columnist Jim Zoschg about the fire blight bacteria that is causing die-back in apple trees in his area. It's titled, curiously enough, "Apple trees dying back."

Then he wraps up the column with this note:
"As you read this, I am in the midst of a two-week hike of a portion of the Appalachian Trail. I have always pondered the possibility of hiking the entire Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, but have never wanted to commit to such a large undertaking.

"However, when I was approached this spring about hiking a portion of the trail in the southern Appalachians, I was all for the trip. We are hiking through the Smokey Mountain National Park and then driving north to hike the trail through Shenandoah National Park."
Good places for a hike!
