A Virtual Hiking Tour through the Appalachian Trail
A Virtual Hiking Tour through the Appalachian Trail On July 3, American Corner Gyumri hosted Assistant Professor Chad Erpelding from Boise State University. Mr. Erpelding introduced himself and spoke about his background. He then shared his hiking experience with American Corner visitors. One of the most interesting facts about the hike was that one can come across wild animals throughout the trip, and as Mr. Erpelding mentioned, hikers should be rather experienced in order to pass through the trail safely. For his lecture, Chad had prepared a photo presentation, showing shelters, wild animals, and hikers among them. Mr. Erpelding also spoke about the importance of carrying sleeping bags, gasoline, food, and medicine while on the hike. In particular, he mentioned the “Appalachian Trail Guide” book, which is a real necessary for a hiker. The attendees had a lot of questions about the problems a hiker can face during the trip. The lecture helped them get acquainted with the outdoor activities in the U.S. At the end of the lecture, Mr. Erpelding mentioned that if one challenges himself, it is possible to discover something new about themselves.
