Section hiking the Appalachian Trail means doing a segment at a time, whenever it’s convenient. It’s not as glamorous as a thru-hike, but it’s still a great way to experience the “footpath for the people.”
Unfortunately, my cancer recovery segments are very short. I may need 21,800 segments to complete the 2,180 miles. That’s going to take a while.
But I’ve accomplished a few already. The photo above was taken two days ago near Great Barrington, MA. The one below is near Becket, MA in January.
You are a real trooper, Chip! Great to see you enjoying the outdoors.

Hi Chip. Phil Brown recommended your blog. I’m an A.T. hiker, too. In two weeks I will be trying to complete 2/5 of the trail, after blood clots forced me off last summer after 3/5. Of course, I have other health problems now. Oh well. I look forward to reading your future posts. Best of luck with your cancer recovery.
