I realize this is random, but I was wondering about this today in class and now I'm just curious...
How many people are buried on the AT? I remember just after upper goose pond cabin (just before for NOBO's) on the there was a headstone of someone who had been buried right there on the trail. (right near an old foundation/chimey) Is this the only one? The AT seemed to come across a lot memorial plaques as we got down in to NC and TENN but I never knew the whole story behind those. I'm talking right on the side of the trail, there would be a random memorial plauqe, 'in memory of bob'
Something to think about I guess.
