In Pictures: The Inaugural Truthdig Trek

This summer’s inaugural Truthdig Trek was truly an adventure. Organized as a fundraiser for Truthdig, the event drew participants from as far away as Canada to join our columnist Chris Hedges, his son and certified mountain guide Thomas Hedges, and Truthdig Publisher Zuade Kaufman on a journey through the Appalachian Trail in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Daily group discussions revolved around Hedges’ classic book, “War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning.”

We’d like to thank all of our participants for their support, enthusiasm and adventurous spirit in helping us make the first Truthdig Trek a success. And now we’d like to share some of the remarkable photos that our group took along the way. Click the link below to view a slide show of photos from the Trek—and click here to read what some of our participants are saying about their experiences. And in case you missed it, check out Chris Hedges’ latest column, which was inspired by the Appalachian Trail.
