Appalachian Trail Stomp
Last year at the Hiker Talent Show at Trail Days in Damascus, Virginia, I discovered that Appalachian Trail thru-hikers are a musical bunch.

That very summer, Bo Cox thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail. He has some great videos of his journey, including this one which uncovers hikers making music on the trail. Keeping up with thru-hiker innovation, they use what was on-hand as their instruments– their gear, their hands and even the trail itself.

Speaking of Bo Cox, he also has a great video condensing his northbound thru-hike into 20 minutes. (Hat Tip, The Smoky Mountain Hiking Blog)
