    Coffee Table Book idea

    I have not seen any books with the best scenes from AT. I wonder about hiking the entire trail and shooting boat loads (Been a photographer since 1986) and publishing a book. "Views From The Trail".

    Anyone know if this has been done?

    How about a book - "Views from my hammock" - hang your hammock up and down the trail in all the interesting spots and take the photos while sitting in the hammock.

    Check out my Trail journal this year along with Michele's. The plan is to take a pic of each nights setup and see who had the best spot at the end of our thru's. Can't say too many ground pounders do that.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Pretty picture on the front cover, but a lot of the comments talk about how it is not photos from the trail.

    A well-used hammock.
