Trekking Sketches

Welcome to our travel, hiking, and adventure blog!

We are New England-based hikers who love sharing traveling and trekking experiences through drawing, writing, and photography with our friends, family, and community of adventurers. The phrase, “Trekking Sketches” encapsulates the essence of what we love about traveling: physically moving through space while sketching images, thoughts, and poems about how we experience the world around us. Our blog is a place for us to record our impressions of the cities and natural places that we explore on foot. 

Want to support the blog? Any purchases made from affiliate links or banner ads on the site will provide us with a small commission to financially support Trekking Sketches. That is always paid for by the online retailer, not the consumer – your purchase price is not affected.

Thank you for visiting!

Appalachian Trail Posts

On November 10, 2022, we finished thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail as a flip-flop! It took us 146 days to hike all 2,194.3 miles of the AT, a long-distance hiking trail that runs through 14 states from Maine to Georgia. 

For more detailed reflections about our AT experiences, check out our blog posts and this video made by 22nd Street Imaging.

We are continuing to blog about our journey, so check back soon!

Trekking: The activity of walking long distances on foot for pleasure.
