The Summit Song

N Trovert put AT words to the tune The Longest Day. These are the words we sang at the register after coming down from Katahdin September 25th. Beth videoed us doing it and we hope to become a you tube sensation. They may ask us to come sing it for Trail Days in Damascus VA and we will become stars. Maybe I won’t have to go back to work. 🙂

The Summit Song – to the tune of The Longest Day

Many folks hiked out of Georgia
One in five walked all the way
Now the climb up Mount Katahdin
Marks their final AT day
Many gals are tired and weary
Many guys slept cold and wet
Now the view from Mount Katahdin
Is a scene they won’t forget
A six month hike, a six month hike
What is there not to like?
Through the rain and wind and hail
On the Appalachian Trail
Counting Steps there were 5 million
14 states along the way
One more time pick up your backpack
As we hike the final day

About Renee

I enjoy adventures. Whether running marathons, thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, working with Service Adventure, or working with youth as Program Director of Swan Lake Christian Camp for 9 years, I have encountered many an adventure. On this site I will try to capture the big and small ones for you. Enjoy!

    Dear Renee,

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You did it. The Appalachian Trail is now more than just a dream!

    It’s been a wonderful journey to travel along with you [and your AT friends] by reading your emails. Looking forward to “The Longest Day” on YouTube.

    When is your next trip to Calgary? We would love to visit with you and hear more of your stories.

    What an incredible journey and accomplishment!!! Thanks for letting me ride along. I also want to thank you for promoting the buillding of an adult retreat center at Swan Lake Christian Camp. Adults need to spend time with God away from their regular routine and busy lives. It brings a closer inner presence with God that heals, forgives, and helps us overcome the trials and tribulations of life so that we can become all that God wants us to be.
    Blessings to you. Cheryl

    P.S. Great song. Now I would encourage you to write your own song about your journey on the AT. You’re a gifted singer and guitar player and I’m sure could create something fantastic on your own as well.

  4. excellent issues altogether, you simply received
    a new reader. What could you suggest about your put up that you made some
    days ago? Any positive?
