At 7 p.m. this evening, the Friends of Lyme Library host Sam Ducharme, who will give a talk titled, “Hiking the Appalachian Trail.”

Ducharme is a retired K9 officer, who will speak about his adventures hiking the Appalachian Trail.  This modern-day adventure started out from Springer Mountain, Ga., and after a 2,180 mile, 14-state backpacking trip, ended at Mt. Katahdin in Maine.

With no prior backpacking experience, he learned on the trail. Ducharme will share the stories of how he cooked, what it was like sleeping in a hammock for six months through three seasons, and the rugged beauty of the Appalachian Mountains.  The images and stories will leave you with a renewed awe of the beauty of our country and its people.

The Lyme Public Library is located at 482 Hamburg Rd./Rte. 156, Lyme, CT 06371.
