Growing up in the low mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania, I grew to love those mountains as my home.  All I ever wanted to do was walk through the woods, up and down the hills forever and ever as a kid.  I still do!  When I see the bare deciduous trees that pepper the Appalachian Mountains in Fall, I can hardly hold myself back from the trails.  So I don’t…I put on my boots and a day pack and head out.  It is a place for us to go to in order to commune and understand our natural world.  For many people, it is their first experience in nature.  Many times throughout my life I’ve done sections of the Appalachian Trail and these have been wondrous times for me.

The Appalachian Trail is a national treasure.  I am a firm believer in this, and as such, I will donate a portion of every Julpak sale to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.  Please help me support the Trail!
