Just for Fun

As we are getting to know each other and preparing for our thru-hike, my new hiking companions and I were sharing our previous hiking and Appalachian Trail experiences.  Several of the group have completed sections of the A.T. and as a little, fun tribute to all those who have set foot on a section of the trail, I created this little poem.  Thought I'd share it with you.

The A.T. Buffet
Ah, bits and pieces,
Tastes of the pie;
A slice here and there,
A treat to the eye.

But the pan is much bigger;
There's more to consume.
The belly's still hungry;
Now make much more room!

Time to indulge fully
In the sights, sounds and tastes;
The sensory buffet
Of the A.T. awaits.
