Just before Pine Grove Furnace State Parks is the physical halfway point with the AT. There's the mobile marker as the length of the AT varies from year to year and the stationary marker for the average years length.
Before I realized where I was at this morning, I was upon the actual mileage marker, 1092.65. Every step beyond this marker I am closer to Mount Kathadin then I am Springer Mountain.
The stationary marker was beyond another shelter. This is the big marker with many decorations.
When I happen upon the first, tears followed. I couldn't believe I stood closer to Mount Katahdin then Springer Mountain. Miles of ache and joy, friends and angels, hopes and fear. This is one of my joyous moments.
