In celebration of the 85th anniversary of the completion of the Appalachian Trail, this exhibition is a pictorial guide of the natural beauty of the Appalachian Mountains collected on photographer Bill Booz's thru-hike of the entire 2,160-mile-long trail. This seven-month odyssey took Booz through 14 states and an estimated five million steps to complete.
A landscape photographer who travels the world to capture images of its most beautiful natural places, Booz's photographs transport viewers into some of nature's finest scenes — from delicate details of flowers in the spring to the majesty of the mountains in fall.
On his travels, Booz has visited all 50 states, and far-flung locales like China, Australia and Africa. He has SCUBA dived on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa and hiked on the Great Wall of China. Adventures like tracking Silverback gorillas in Rwanda, swimming with sharks in Central America and monkey’s jumping into his arms in China have all contributed to his amazing experiences.
