At Mountain Crossings, we wanted to dedicate a blog post to congratulate all the 2017 thru-hikers! About a week ago, we asked ya’ll to send us your finishing pictures so we could post them on our blog. Here they are and enjoy!

Congratulations again to these thru hikers and every other 2017 thru hiker! You should check out the AT medal for yourself, or a friend who recently finished the trail. If anyone is interested in thru-hiking in the future, please do not hesitate to call, email, or stop by the store! We love talking about thru-hiking and helping others achieve their goals. We are also hosting an AT Prep Class that’s taught by TheBackpacker.tv this January and February. Find out more information on their website here. Happy Holidays!
