NoBo Yearbook

Here are all the NoBo thru-hikers we managed to pass on our way South through Maine! This is absolutely not a comprehensive list, as there were plenty we didn't walk right by (I tend to wake up around 9am, after most hikers have already been walking for 3 hours. What's the point of being unemployed if you can't sleep in?), likely hundreds that already finished, many more who were still on their way North, and some who I just plain forgot to snap a picture of. These were taken in haste with my iPod. Dumptruck has been taking marvelous portraits of thru-hikers, and these are decidedly not those professional photos. He'll put a book together at some point with the good stuff. In the meanwhile, here's all 95 hiker trash we ran into, presented in the order we ran into them:

Invisible Man, Army Ant, Jacko and Rollin' R
