Roan Crest

5 backpacking buddies, 1 shuttle ride to the trailhead, some whiskey, endless epic views, 1 tent with hundreds of tiny little ember holes, 3 days and 2 nights, 15 miles, lots of coffee, and lots of good memories. A collection of photos from a recent trip to hike the Roan Crest, a section of the Appalachian Trail that traverses the expansive massif of the Roan Highlands.
