Hand-Held & Hike-Inspired

Inspired by Shelly Hail's thru-hiking odyssey on the Appalachian Trail, this generously sized mug sports a mountain range motif and words that invoke the ups and downs of the journey. Crafted by Hail and fellow potter Chris Hudson, it also features the A.T. symbol on the back, hiking boot tracks inside, and a lug sole-like texture on the bottom for a true trekker's tribute. It makes a great gift for anyone who enjoys campfire coffee or the allure of the trail less traveled. Handmade in La Motte, Vermont.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
