Watching the Solar Eclipse from the Appalachian Trail

Watching the Solar Eclipse from the Appalachian Trail

August’s full solar eclipse is the first visible from the United States since 1979. Traveling over 14 states on its way east, from Oregon to South Carolina, the eclipse passes over the southern end of the Appalachian Trail - a 2,200-mile wilderness hike that winds from Georgia to Maine. Photographer Spike Johnson traveled to witness the event and survey the scene.
