GG and Rodo, We Salute You!

Hiking the Appalachian Trail back in June, we met a lovely couple named GG & Rodo (actually, Ron and Kelly) who were hiking the whole trail from South to North. We stopped and chatted, and we got to talking, naturally, about birds. We filled them in on that scarlet, black-winged creature they'd seen (Scarlet Tanager) and on a few other birds they'd come across in their long hike.

Here's the original post from our AT blog, located right next door.

Well, GG & Rodo have done it! They have hiked, stumbled, crawled and climbed all the way to Mount Katahdin. Congrats, you two!

You can check out their adventures on their blog here. They were kind enough to remember us, and say a nice thing or two about Birdcouple...

GG & Rodo, we will remember you when we climb Mount K in the year 2024, or thereabouts. 1,800 miles to go...

BTW, we have seen LOTS of birds on the AT - our list is 80 or more, everything from warblers to a Whip-Poor-Will to owls, hawks, ravens and more...

Wow!-80 species-I want to do more hiking myself. I used to but I think I'm focusing on trying to see birds to0 much.

Wood and Thrush,

Thanks so much for the kind words. Rhodo and I are slowly getting back in the swing of things in the real world.

Seeing loons in Maine was a real treat.

We're so excited to hear more about your future hikes.
