Appalachian Hiking and camping
join author & guide don defreeze
The Appalachian Mountains of Virginia are a perfect place to hike, camp, sight-see, kayak, cycle or many other outdoor adventures.
What a wonderful place to dive into the peaceful realm of wilderness solitude and ponder existence.
Whether alone, a group or family, take this opportunity to let me guide you throughout the Roanoke region. I've been exploring the area's trails and countryside for well over 30 years and have helped others experience the same for over 12. I extend my knowledge to all.

Please Read- Get started on the trail as Don can do nothing but reminisce and grapple with the journey's obstacles that lie ahead. This book builds a framework of who Don is, his history and the importance of this hike and also the answers he seeks.
Climb Beyond the Crest- Immersed into the hike, Don must commit to see it through and then reaches deep into his nature to overcome the drudgery and pain of reaching his shelter goal. Solace of the shelter combines with his life's experience and insight to make conclusions about the essence of existence and life itself. This is our state we live in.
