Looking out from the back porch of Mountain Crossings outfitter at the Walasi-Yi Interpretive Center, across Neels Gap in Georgia. Walasi-Yi is the first real stop for northbound thru-hikers, about 30 miles along the Trail north of the southern terminus of the A.T. at Springer Mountain. The trail runs right through the old 1930’s CCC stone building. 2009.
