NF Display August 2013


I'm on a bit of an outdoors kick it seems lately, or it could be the friends who are inspiring my displays are just really outdoorsy and active.  Either way, this display is for Seth (aka "Cheddar"), who has hiked the entire Appalachian Trail and who hopes to hike the Pacific Crest Trail in a year or two.  While you can't see the image thanks to light reflection, I plundered his photos of his hike to make a sign for this display (added text is "Go Take a Hike... ...and Explore").

The selections this month are a mix: about hiking or experiencing the Appalachian Trail, about hiking and backpacking in general, hiking maps, and about the trail itself.  Some of these books come very highly recommended, in particular AWOL on the Appalachian Trail.
