A chance encounter at the Bland Square Diner led to a delightful visit from a group of Applachain Trail through hikers. Upon learning that the BCHS office was open, they made plans to visit in order to enrich their knowledge of the area they were hiking through. Three members of the group are pictured below. Note the caps, which were among the several BCHS souvenirs they purchased. Also see a nice article in the March/April 2013 issue of A. T. Journeys about the AT in Bland County.
