Vine user Isaiah Cooper posted his first trail Vine when he started a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail four months ago. Since then he's entertained followers with posts of wildlife, scenic views and trail culture and cuisine.
Cooper's most recent post lets us know he's somewhere in the Presidential Range of New Hampshire's White Mountains. Through his Vines he has answered all sorts of questions about life on the trail and has also been sending postcards to fellow Vine users. Though he first offered postcards to anyone who asked, after getting tons of requests he had to make the postcards into a contest, sending them to users who submitted great nature Vines. Cooper has gained nearly 45,000 followers in the past month.
The Appalachian Trail spans some 2,180 miles, beginning in Georgia and ending in Maine. Thru-hikers endeavor to complete the entire trail in one hiking season. According to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, most hikers begin in Georgia and hike north (like Cooper) and take an average of six months to complete the journey.
