Video: Appalachian Trail Thru Hiker Storm on top of New Hampshire's Mount Lafayette

As Storm makes his way north on the Appalachian Trail, one iconic landscape he has traveled through is the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Here the Appalachian Trail ascends above treeline to many different high altitude summits and even crosses the Franconia Ridge, a high-altitude ridge linking Mount Lafayette and Mount Lincoln, all above treeline. Mount Lafayette is one of higher peaks of the White Mountains and towers over Franconia Notch.



Storm is now over 1,900 miles into his northbound Appalachian Trail thru-hike. He began hiking at Springer Mountain in Georgia on April 6, 2016 and has been on the trail since then. He anticipates reaching Mount Katahdin in Maine, the official end of the 2,100 mile Appalachian Trail in the middle of September.
