  1. I was very beautiful scenery. Do you know what kind of butterfly that one was it sure was pretty ? Thank you for sharing this video was really nice.I live in Northern New England where the Appalachian trail is right out my front door. 👍💖😊

  2. Do you carry a weapon for self-defense? A transponder in case you get injured, lost and need rescue? Many hikers are going missing in wildernesses of North America. Great video

  3. It's breath taking views my Great Grandma half Cherokee called them Shaconage mountains. I could almost picture a bear clawing away at the log looking for grubs. Very enjoyable video. Thank you.😄 for sharing .

  4. Thanks for taking us along on this superb hike BB. The bears really know how to work the dead-fall. Amazing fungi and views.
