The first time I saw the AT was at Wind Rock outside of Pearisburg.
Wind Rock is located behind Mountain Lake, which is a popular
destination/hiking area for students from Va. Tech.  I remember
meeting a hiker, and asking how far he had come.  When he said
"Pennsylvania" I practically fell over.  That's how I learned about
the AT, and what a long distance hike was all about.  I resolved when
I started hiking that the one place I would definitely make camp while
hiking was at Wind Rock, which I did.  It brought back a lot of
memories almost 20 years after meeting that hiker.
