    Here's a poem written just recently by a guy (John Hibbs) currently thru-hiking:

    "The Trail"

    You walk the trail, looking forward
    What's around the bend?
    The view from the top, worth the look
    Deep breaths your new found friend
    Late in the day, seems so long
    Will this section ever end?

    The stars and moon
    Sunrise and set
    Noises in the night
    Wind, sun, thunder comes
    Snow, hail and rain
    You forget the strain
    the blisters pain
    the hot, the cold, being old
    Only the memories and photos remain

    Your parents gave you a name
    but here you can start anew
    Choose a name quickly
    or again, one will be chosen for you

    Gear a common topic
    I wonder if it has always been so
    Even before the white man came
    "Nice buckskin jacket
    but will it keep out the rain".

    Some walk fast others slow
    I have gone past Turtle so many times
    It does not seem to matter
    what pace you go

    Some people leave early
    walking in the night
    I wonder why they didn't leave yesterday,
    or last year
    then they wouldn't need their light

    There are the flat earth people
    who ignore what the guide books say
    It will be flat tomorrow
    then easy all the way

    Hit the town
    like a bear
    start foraging for food.
    Fill the pack
    wander back
    You get the feeling
    Welcome
    Good that you are here

    Many begin in Spring
    A time when life renews
    Finding magic really happens
    in each and every day
    Life becomes simple
    just walk to where you lay
    Carry all your needs
    Wants get in the way.
    Take water from the stream
    so cool and clear
    Your mind becomes at ease
    Letting go things
    you once held so dear.

    To me it's never about
    walking a long, long way
    It's the journey
    People and animals you have met
    Though the best part is
    it is not over yet.

    Not bad. Not bad at all.
