Hiking the Appalachian Trail is the focus of Museum Moments on Thursday, May 26 , 12 noon at the Union county Heritage Museum. The program is free.
Margaret and Wayne Vanlandingham of New Albany have recently completed the 2,193 mile hike through 14 states and will talk about their journey and show the gear that they carried through the trek. In a recent article, they say that they were not experienced hikers . But they were very determined to finish what they had started.
The accomplishment of completing the trail was a good experience for the couple, they said.
They celebrated birthdays, an anniversary, Christmas , New Years on the walking trail.
Come to the museum Thursday and learn more about this fascinating experience. Lunch is courtesy of the Museum Guild.
