After a year of school, it's time for the final exam: hike all of the #AppalachianTrail in New Jersey. In "Stay Together," experience the journey of the inner-city students of St. Benedict's Prep as they hike the A.T. in order to better learn how to work together. #myATstory

“Away, away, from men and towns,
To the wild wood and the downs, —
To the silent wilderness,
Where the soul need not repress its music.”

“If people in general could be got into the woods, even for once, to hear the trees speak for themselves, all difficulties in the way of forest preservation would vanish.”

Today we observe #VeteransDay, celebrating the women and men who bravely fought for our country. In 2013, veteran William "Saber" Sam carried an important piece of gear during his #AppalachianTrail thru-hike: an American flag from his tour in the Iraq War. At the summit of Katahdin, he held the flag with the star field facing right, giving the effect of the flag's bearer moving forward.

The ATC expresses its sincere thanks to America's military veterans. #ThankYouForYourService #ThankAVeteran
