We begin a new series in this edition of DSO called ‘Trail Magic’. In 2003 Lorne Blagdon and his daughter Naomi hiked the entire length of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. Lorne wrote a series of newspaper columns on their adventure and every week we’ll talk about a segment of the trip beginning today with a definition of trail magic.
