Appalachian Trail

Our amazing Adele Ritchie (from Moyhu), is off on another epic adventure having conquered the Alpine Walking Track (“only” 655km) and the Hume and Hovell track (426km) over the last few years, accompanied by local club bushwalkers.

Today she has completed 100 days on the famed Appalachian Trail in eastern USA by herself, and is now about one third of the way along the 3,500km track!

She started in the deep south state of Georgia on April 1st, and is now level with Washington DC, heading towards the far north state of Maine.

If you wish to follow Adele’s journey she has a detailed blog at (see link below) which she seems to update every month.
