Our 3 minute contest video was edited for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy “I am the Appalachian Trail” video contest. The ATC contest features many videos that share a personal view point about the hikers experience. We decided that we should enter Emma Gatewood, whose story has helped shape a generation of hikers trail experiences. We used some footage from our upcoming documentary “Trail Magic” to give Emma’s journal’s a voice. Please vote for our video (it is under Bette Lou Higgins name ) at https://apps.facebook.com/easypromos-premium/voteme/16348/615913374.
